FILE - In this March 31, 2011, file photo House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., right, accompanied by the committee's ranking Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., presides over the committee's hearing on the Freedom of Information Act on Capitol Hill in Washington. Acting on his promise to reinvigorate FOIA on his first day in office, President Barack Obama told all federal agencies to adopt a "presumption in favor of disclosure". But his administration couldn't keep pace with the increasing number of requests for copies of government documents, emails, photographs and more under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, according to an Associated Press analysis of federal data over the last three years from 37 of the largest federal departments and agencies.
