In a few days, Congress will resume its session. Under the original legislative calendar, this is scheduled on May 31. However, the Senate and the House of Representatives have decided to advance the resumption to May 24 to facilitate an earlier canvass of the votes for the President and Vice President.
The Right to Know. Right Now! Campaign is prepared to make a determined push for the passage of the Freedom of Information Act. The bill, after having hurdled reconciliation by the bicameral conference committee, only needs ratification by the Lower House (the Senate has already fulfilled its ratification last February 1) before it is enrolled and transmitted to the President for her signing into law.
We call on you to join us in the activities that we have lined up for the coming weeks. Your support will add inspiration and muscle to the campaign, and improve the chance of the FOI bill finally becoming law after more than two decades since the ratification of the 1987 Constitution.
