Less than a week after it was filed by Sens. John Cornyn, R-TX, and Patrick Leahy, D-VT, the Faster FOIA Act was approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee. The bill, a companion to the more detailed OPEN Government Act, would create a 16-member Commission on Freedom of Information Act Processing Delays. The commission would have a one-year study life, reporting to Congress at the end of that time on ways to make the processing of FOIA requests more efficient. (3/18/05)
