It was a good day for FOIA advocates. The Associated Press reports that 12 states filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the Environmental Protection Agency to block new federal rules the states say would result in less public disclosure about toxic chemicals that companies store, use and release into the environment.

"We will restore the public’s right to information about chemical hazards, despite the Bush administration’s best attempts to hide it," New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo told AP.
