Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Updates on Presidential Signing Statement Page

Recently I’ve been able to update our page on Presidential Signing Statements with these three relatively new signing statements:

  • 20061004 – No privacy reports under DHS?
  • 20061013 – Keeping Internet gambling in the dark
  • 20061017 – No information on threats to America

Each of these statements appear to deny reports to Congress and/or the general public.

We at FGI look forward to the day when Presidential Signing Statements that purport to cancel portions of passed laws are challenged in the courts.

No President, Republican, Democrat or other should have the ability to selectively annul portions of laws through signing statements. They should either veto the laws, challenge them in open court, or faithfully execute them as they have sworn to do. Those are the lawful options in our country.
