Getting Government Documents

Conduct investigations on your own through the Freedom of Information Act(FOIA)

News reporters commonly use FOIA when doing background stories dealing with federal agencies and politicians. Attorney's may do the same. You also have the right to documents held in government agencies. The process does require some fee and requires you must describe in some detail records you are seeking in order for the researcher to locate the documents and your request must conform with that particular agency's regulations.
