EPIC Thanks Congress for FOIA Oversight, Calls for Renewed Attention to Transparency

“EPIC, along with more than 40 transparency organizations, thanked the House Committee on Oversight for sending a letter to the Department of Justice about the importance of the Freedom of Information Act. The open government organizations said “outdated FOIA regulations, excessive fee assessments, growing FOIA backlogs, and the misuse of exemptions are issues that continually frustrate FOIA requesters” and expressed hope that the Committee would share the Department of Justice’s responses with the public.”
