Freedom of Environmental InformationeBook - 2011
The Freedom of Information Act makes most documents held by the American government available to citizens; the National Environmental Policy Act has unique requirements for the collection and disclosure of environmentally-relevant information, and a variety of specific federal environmental statutes mandate reports from business and industry. American environmental jurisprudence is based largely upon the management of this information, but due to longstanding patterns of administrative law and a legal system that enforces information collection procedures rather than the substantive value of the resulting documents, true freedom of environmental information has not yet been achieved in America.
