CONGRESS ONLINE POLL

Rep. Jorge Almonte, chairman of the House Committee on Public Information, said the proposed Freedom of Information (FOI) bill seeks to implement the constitutional right of the people to access official records, documents, research papers, decisions and other information involving public interest.
