The Associated Press: Government can't keep up with information requests

WASHINGTON (AP)  The Obama administration couldn't keep pace with the
increasing number of people asking for copies of government documents,
emails, photographs and more under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act,
according to a new analysis of the latest federal data by The Associated
Press.

Federal agencies did better last year trying to fulfill requests, but still
fell further behind with backlogs, due mostly to surges in immigration
records requested from the Homeland Security Department. It released all or
portions of the information that citizens, journalists, businesses and
others sought  and outright rejected other requests  at about the same
rate as the previous two years. The AP analyzed figures over the last three
years from 37 of the largest federal departments and agencies.
