WASHINGTON, March 13, 2017 /Standard Newswire/ -- Judicial Watch has announced that President Tom Fitton will provide testimony on March 15 before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee during a hearing titled "Legislative Proposals for Fostering Transparency." The committee is chaired by Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT). The hearing will examine current barriers to accessing public documents under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), including delays, administrative backlogs and excessive redactions.
 
Judicial Watch is the nation's preeminent watchdog group and has filed over 3,000 FOIA requests with the Obama administration. The nonpartisan group has filed nearly 225 FOIA lawsuits against the Obama administration, leading to major revelations in the Benghazi, IRS, and Clinton financial scandals.
