FOIA Council reconvenes

Guam - Following its inaugural meeting late last month, the Freedom of Information Council reconvened this afternoon during which members spent much of the meeting discussing rules and procedures. While a subcommittee of the council noted that a draft complaints processing procedure along with a complaints form had been formulated, member and former senator Bob Klitzie questioned whether in fact the Open Government Law was being followed within the council.

"What I would have do, is I would have us draft the rules by which this council is going to operate - come up with some forms, and we had some discussions about what would go in the forms, finish that, probably the best way to do it is have a properly noticed called meeting of the subcommittee, adopt the subcommittee's recommendations, send them back here for the council's adoption. Otherwise, we're way ahead of ourselves, we got the cart before the horse, we have several things going on at the same time that could lead to nothing but chaos," he explained.

There are currently two complaints before the council, however members voted to not entertain any of them until the rules and procedures are formally adopted.
