The United States passed the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) under the influence of President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1966 and went into effect the following year. The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a law that gives the public "the right to access information from the federal government. It is often described as the law that keeps citizens in the know about their government."
