The Cause of Action Institute is calling on the Office of Management and Budget to make available all public comments on President Trump’s March 13 executive order to develop a plan for reorganizing the executive branch.
The CoA Institute filed a Freedom of Information Act request on June 19 seeking access to all public input regarding executive branch efficiency, organization, regulations, etc., made between May and June 2017 through forms on two participating websites.
Somewhere between 2,000 and over 100,000 public comments and suggestions have been submitted — based on disparate numbers separately reported by regulations.gov and the White House’s reorganization subsite — yet none have been made available.
A copy of the CoA Institute’s FOIA request can be viewed on CauseOfAction.org.
