Report Shows Obama Administration is Ignoring FOIA Law

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Today, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) issued the following statement responding to a study by the National Security Archive of The George Washington University that found a majority of President Obama's federal agencies are not in compliance with the 2007 Cornyn-Leahy OPEN Government Act streamlining the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request process:

"When President Obama took office, he pledged that his administration would be the most transparent in history. This report reveals how hollow that pledge was, and can be added to the long list of broken promises from his Administration."

The OPEN Government Act passed Congress with bipartisan approval and was signed into law in 2007. It required federal agencies to update their process for handling FOIA requests.
