The JFK Act of 1992 exemplifies one major CAPA initiative especially congruent with the goals of Sunshine Week and other open government initiatives this spring fostered by the newspaper, broadcast and library leaders along with concerned citizens. The JFK Act requires federal release of records on the assassination of President Kennedy by October 2017. The president of the United States at that time will be responsible for enforcement.
“Especially in 2017,” Dr. Wecht said, ”this is a key time to foster public confidence in government by building public support for document release and other ‘sunshine’ goals. Time is running out to do something about the horrific JFK crime and cover-up. There is power in numbers. We hope you will join us in this worthy endeavor to bring truth to the American people.”
