Justice Department pulls back on FOIA changes

The Justice Department has dropped its proposed changes to the Freedom of Information Act, which is good news.
APME had sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday, asking him to drop these proposals that essentially would allow federal agencies to deny even the existence of federal documents.
Other groups opposed the changes, and the Justice Department shared its decision in a letter to key senators.
Here's coverage of the development by Pete Yost of The Associated Press.
