Under Trump’s first 100 Days, FOIA a little slower while open data takes a hit

lterrat's bookmarks 2017-04-29

Summary:

"Since President Donald Trump took office, slow Freedom of Information Act processes have become even slower — although it is tough to determine what, if anything, that means.

According to MuckRock data from around the time of the inauguration, the average federal FOIA request took 164 days from initial filing to final response.

Now, almost 100 days into the new administration, things have only gotten worse. The average response time has creeped up to 168 days — a modest 2.5 percent increase in delay, but still a troubling transparency sign with the new administration."
