What Happens To My FOIA Request?
The CDC/ATSDR and FOIA
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) was signed into law on July 4, 1966, by President Lyndon B. Johnson. This law grants public access to federal agency records, unless those records are exempt from public release by one of the nine exemptions within FOIA that allow certain records to be withheld from public inspection.
