SUNSHINE Week: It’s going to to take all of us to clear the air

Ads Developed by University of Florida, with good basketball team props.

Recently, newspaper reporters discovered that the Environmental Protection Agency had "quietly allowed oil refineries nationwide to miss court-mandated deadlines to reduce air emissions, exposing thousands of people to dangerous pollutants."

Airing issues like this is important to all of us. Citizens in a democracy have a fundamental right to know what their government is doing—or not doing.

Freedom of information assures that we have access to government records. Then we can take steps to prevent government from keeping us in the dark on pollution. We’ll all breathe easier.

It's Time.

Let the Sunshine in.
