The proposed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) – as may be gleaned from the contents of House Bill No. 3732; Senate Resolution No. 11; and Senate Bill Nos. 16, 109, 576, 592, 1578 and 2571 – aims to strengthen the right of the people to have access to information, a right that is explicitly guaranteed in the 1987 Constitution.
