Use this space to give a brief description of any issues that you have had with FOIA requests. Please include as much detail as possible including the entity you requested information from.


For example:

1. A meeting was called without proper notice - particularly an executive session of a board or council.
2. Someone uses the working paper exemption and you know it isn't working papers
3. You ask for specific information under a FOIA request and only part of it is furnished.
4. You ask for a police incident report - but are told you can't get it because it contains "personal information."

This information will be used as anecdotal evidence for the Virginia Press Association's lobbying efforts.
