The 1996 amendments to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) mandate electronic availability of certain publicly accessible Agency FOIA materials and other information routinely made available to the public. This is commonly referred to as an Electronic Reading Room.
Before submitting a FOIA request, please check to see if the information you are looking for is available in our Electronic Reading Room, or perhaps listed under another category on our website.
