To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
All written documents or statements, including preliminary drafts, submitted by Richard M. Bowen III to the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission.
Dear Mr. Threatt:
This is in response to your email of Sept. 22, 2013, requesting, under the
provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), access to records
relating to Richard M. Bowen III from the records of the Financial Crisis
Inquiry Commission (FCIC). As a legislative branch commission, the
materials are not subject to the FOIA. Pursuant to 36 C.F.R. §1250.6 (c),
“FOIA applies only to the records of the executive branch of the Federal
government and certain Presidential records.”
The FCIC established a closure period of five years (until 2016) for its
unpublished records. The National Archives will not make any of the FCIC's
unpublished records available before the end of that closure period.
Because these records are not subject to the FOIA, we do not consider this
a denial. If you believe this response to be a denial, you may appeal by
Deputy Archivist (ND)
National Archives and Records Administration
College Park, Maryland 20740
Your appeal should be received within 35 calendar days of the date of this
message and it should explain why you think this response does not meet the
requirements of the FOIA.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
