CREW: Department of the Treasury: Regarding Records of the Schedules of Secretary Timothy Geithner and Deputy Secretary Wolin

On July 1, 2009, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) sent requests to the Department of the Treasury and the National Economic Council (NEC) seeking records related to development of the financial regulatory reforms recently proposed by President Obama. CREW sought records related to those meetings, documents provided to government officials, and documents produced by the government related to the reforms. The requests sent to the Department of Treasury are Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. As the White House does not consider the NEC to be an agency subject to FOIA, the request sent to the NEC seeks a discretionary disclosure of records.
