Firestone Bill of Rights Discussion

So recently I’ve seen this go around in Firestone, not sure of the source.

So applicants of departments are saying the have the right to know their application status when they ask and they should be protected under the Bill of Rights for Firestone.

“SECTION X.
All citizens have the freedom of information. Should a citizen request for information that is actively collected to be released, the relevant department, agency, entity, etc. shall be obligated to release the requested information, if possible…”

What is your opinion on this subject?

The issue with that section is it doesn’t define how FoI should be requested. And applications are private information. Plus, there’s an unintended consequences here; if departments are forced to, under FOI, release applications as free info, that means anyone can request anyone’s application and its status.
