What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Faster FOIA Act of 2011?

Okay, so can anybody point me to the actual text of Boehner's debt limit increase bill? I keep reading that it's S. 627, which is the Faster FOIA Act of 2011 that sets up a committee to report back on why FOIA request are taking so long. Supposedly he's offering his debt limit increase and spending cuts as an amendment to the act, but I can't find the text of that amendment.

And, doesn't anybody else find it hilarious that such an important piece of legislation is being introduced as an amendment to an unrelated bill?

Yeah, yeah, it's the way around reporting out of committee, blah, blah, blah. Not like we didn't see this coming for the past year.
