Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Request

Read the pamphlet "Your Right to Federal Records: Questions and Answers on the Freedom of Information Act and the Privacy Act."

Using the sample request letter on page 4 of the pamphlet as a template, write your own Freedom of Information Act request to an agency of your choice, regarding an issue or matter also of your choice.

For the purposes of this assignment, you do not have to actually send your request, although it may be interesting to see what you receive, if anything, from the agency you write to.
