The Department of Justice Office of Information Policy recently announced that it is asking Executive Branch agencies to begin implementing a new policy under the Freedom of Information Act known as “release to one, release to all.”  Under this policy, when an agency releases a FOIA production to the requester, it will also place the production on its website for the public to access.  The federal government processed more than 700,000 FOIA requests last year, which means this policy will bring a lot more government information to the public.

Today, Cause of Action Institute submitted the comment below to the White House Office of Management and Budget and the DOJ Office of Information Policy urging it to consider several issues as it finalizes this policy.
