Bipartisan Letter Seeks Answers on Open-Government Failures
By James Rowley

A U.S. House panel has asked the Justice Department to explain why agencies have not implemented President Barack Obama’s 2009 pledge to make government more transparent by releasing records requested under the Freedom of Information Act. FOIA-related complaints jumped 28 percent to 720 in the last two years of Obama’s first term from 562 in the last two years of President George W. Bush’s second term, according to a study by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.
