Group Says State AG Overcharges for FOIA

Aug 6, 2015

A liberal organization says Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is trying to block an inquiry into his office by charging hefty fees for public records.

Progress Michigan says it’s asking the Republican attorney general to reconsider the decision to ask for more than $19,000 for records.

The group wants to examine communications between members of the AG’s staff and lobbyists in an effort to uncover instances of inappropriate conduct. The inquiry was inspired by a New York Times story on other attorney generals.
