Excerpt
Excerpt: Leading up to the passage of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (P.L. 107-296), a debate ensued regarding the exemption of critical infrastructure information from the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. S 552. Both the House and Senate versions of the Homeland Security Act (H.R. 5005 and S. 2452, respectively) contained language exempting such information, but the two versions were significantly different. Final passage of the Act included the House language (sections 211 -- 215 of P.L. 107-296). This report discusses the differences in language and some of the arguments and concerns expressed by both supporters and critics of the exemption.
