From the SPJ Senator Secrecy sweepstakes...

Please make a quick call to your state's senators today. We need all the help we can get in smoking out "Senator Secrecy," the legislator who put a secret hold on the proposed Open Government Act, which could significantly reform FOIA.

Please post the results of your queries using this form:


We need everyone pulling together to complete this exercise as quickly as possible. There is no such thing as "duplicated effort." When you have your senators' offices on the line, please make it clear that you support the Open Government Act and expect and expect your elected officials to do the same.

Thanks so much!
