We're pleased to announce during Sunshine Week that five leaders in government will receive SGI's first annual Sunshine in Government Award for their commitment and work to strengthen open government. Government openness is critical to the health of our democracy.
The Sunshine Award was created to honor individuals who have made a significant contribution over time to open government at the federal level. The Selection Committee met in January and identified these leaders for their longstanding work to strengthen the Freedom of Information (FOIA) and other open government policies and practices.

The Honorable John Cornyn, U.S. Senate (Texas)
The Honorable Patrick Leahy, U.S. Senate (Vermont)
