Italy House Authorizes Creation of FOI Decree

6 August 2015

The Italian House Aug. 4 passed a “Public Administrative” bill that grants the government authority to write a freedom of information law.

The package of reforms contains general instructions for the creation of a FOI decree.

FOI supporters, while pleased with the move overall, are concerned about the lack of specific direction provided. The bill refers to a right of access but outlines only a few principles.

A FOI bill has been filed in the House by Anna Ascani based on a text proposed by a broad coalition of pro-FOI groups.
