Study: Oldest FOIA request dates back 20 years

AP – “Federal agencies are still taking too long to open records to the public, with the oldest requests at eight agencies now dating back over a decade, a new study finds. A report by the National Security Archive found continued backlogs and little progress more than two years after President Barack Obama ordered the government to respond more quickly to public requests for records. The findings were released on Monday, which is the 45th anniversary of the U.S. Freedom of Information Act.”
