FOIA News (2017)Allan BlutsteinComment

Yesterday the Senate Judiciary Committee sent a request to DOJ's Office of Information Policy seeking information on "the implementation of the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016," as well as OIP's "role in FOIA matters."   Among the seven questions raised, the Committee has asked for an update on DOJ's "Released to One, Release to All" policy and an explanation for its recent guidance regarding the definition of a "record."  

OIP's response to the Committee is due April 5, 2017.
