September 13, 2012: CEI Sues the EPA

Posted By Ryan Young On September 13, 2012 @ 1:03 pm In All Episodes | Comments Disabled

The EPA has been stonewalling a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from the Competitive Enterprise Institute since 2010. Since the EPA has no intention to comply with the law, CEI has sued the EPA [1] in a case that could set a major precedent [2] in government transparency. Energy Policy Analyst William Yeatman [3] explains how agency officials have been using private email accounts to conduct official business, arguing that non-governmental email accounts are exempt from outside scrutiny. CEI argues that basic transparency demands that public information be made public.
