Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
Region 6 Electronic Reading Room
(Frequently Requested Information)
Welcome to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Mountain Prairie Region Electronic Reading Room.
Under 5 U.S.C. 552(a)(2)(D), bureaus and offices will make available for public inspection and copying all records that have been released to any person under section 552(a)(3) (i.e., released pursuant to a FOIA request) of the FOIA if they determine that the records have become or are likely to become the subject of frequent FOIA requests for substantially the same records (e.g., travel records of high level officials, reports generating considerable public interest (e.g., certain records relating to an energy or Endangered Species Act controversy), the FOIA annual reports to DOJ/Congress, lists of credit cardholders, etc.). Documents that have been requested at least three times under the FOIA are considered “frequently requested documents.”
This electronic reading room contains information available to the public as well as documents frequently requested from the Mountain Prairie Region under the Freedom of Information Act. The list of documents will continue to grow as we add records in which the public expresses an interest.
