New Report on FOIA performance

A new report on Freedom of Information Act performance says “the government’s overall FOIA performance remains at the lowest point since agency reporting began in 1998, despite President Bush’s executive order last December directing agencies to become more service oriented and reform legislation introduced in the Congress.”

The Coalition collected the FOIA performance reports from the 15 Cabinet-level departments and 15 agencies dating back to 1998.
