The FOI Youth Initiative (FYI), along with all its partner organizations, is one of the endorsers of the proposed People's Freedom of Information Act through the Right to Know, Right Now! Coalition's petition for indirect initiative allowed by Republic Act No. 6735 (Initiative and Referendum Act), which provides ways for civil society organizations to directly propose legislation in Congress. The People's FOI Act of the Coalition has been consolidated with the other bills filed by legislators in the House of Representatives. At this point, we are still waiting for the House Committee on Public Information to approve the measure in order for it to be tackled in the plenary. The Senate has already passed its version on third and final reading.
