Mr. Blanton talked about access to presidential records and the importance of open government and freedom of information. He also responded to telephone calls and electronic mail.

The previous day the House passed several bills that would provide more public access to government records. One would overturn President Bush’s executive order limiting access to presidential records. Another would require the release of presidential library donor information. A third would improve government response times to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. A fourth bill would improve protection to federal whistleblowers. close
