Non-profit Freedom Of Information Act requestor claims EPA abusing fee waivers

Officials with the Competitive Enterprise Institute are appealing an Environmental Protection Agency decision to "arbitrarily and capricously" deny two fee waiver requests submitted by the conservative non-profit, The Washington Examiner has learned.

Larry Gottesman, EPA's national FOIA officer, denied the CEI requests in retaliation for the non-profit's persistence in seeking copies of all documents related to any email accounts, IM accounts or other forms of electronic communication the agency made available to former administrator Lisa Jackson, Christopher C. Horner claimed in an appeal letter Friday.
