Sunshine Week renews debate on Obama and FOIA
By Ed O'Keefe

Three years after President Obama ordered agencies on his first day in office to err on the side of openness when granting FOIA requests, and three years after Holder established tighter standards for fighting FOIA requests, there is “little evidence that these new standards are actually being followed,” according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a nonpartisan research group at Syracuse University and authors of The FOIA Project, a Web site tracking such requests. Justice Department lawyers “have become even more aggressive in defending anything that federal agencies choose to withhold,” TRAC said this month.
