CREW: Department of Agriculture: Regarding Specific Agency Policies and Programs

On January 30, 2008, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the Department of Agriculture seeking copies of emails relating to specific agency policies and programs. CREW seeks to determine whether agency non-compliance with federal record-keeping laws and regulations, especially as to email, is a government-wide problem. CREW filed the same FOIA with six other agencies, including: the Department of Labor, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Education, the Department of the Interior, the Department of Commerce, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.
