Study: More FOIA complaints under Obama

The number of complaints filed by people seeking U.S. records rose 6 percent in President Barack Obama's first term from the previous four years, a study found. The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University said there were 720 filings in the first two years of the Obama administration, compared to 562 in the last two years of President George W. Bush's second term, The Washington Times reported. That is a 28 percent increase, but the clearinghouse said the total increase for Obama's first term was only 6 percent.
