September 19, 2018
The Reporters Committee submitted comments regarding the Office of Management and Budget's proposed updates to its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) regulations. The comments recommend that OMB's modify the proposed rule in numerous ways, including conforming to FOIA's definition of "representative of the news media", ensuring it is consistent with D.C. Circuit precedent on "determinations", and adding language implementing the foreseeable harm standard.
