Hey, if they ignore 1000 requests and one guy manages to find a way to hold
their feet to the 
fire and make them do their job, that's once they got to put it off for a year
and 999 times
they didn't have to do it at all. Sounds like a win-win for bureaucracy. 

Mitch.

Coddling the order-giver and punishing the order-followers sounds about par for
the
course to me. I bet the worst punishment was reserved for the whistle-blowers
who
refused to give or follow illegal orders. 
What do you think, Andrew?

Filed an FOIA request with FEMA a year ago May 
to get additional documentation on my property 
relative to flood maps.  Got a confirmation 
letter within a few days afterwards, outlining 
the statutory requirement for them to respond to 
me within 20 business days.


Fully expecting they would not respond in the 
time allotted, I let it go, and they didn't.


However, by last December I was wondering what 
was going on, so I emailed the contact they gave 
me along with all the identifying information 
from my request.

So, May rolls around and I figure I should 
rattle their cage again, now that it's been a 
year, and I do so via email.


 crickets 

So Sunday I took a few minutes and contacted the 
office of Dennis Ross, our Congressional 
representative.  I got a response on Tuesday 
asking me to fill out a privacy form so they 
could inquire of FEMA on my behalf.  I haven't 
returned it to them yet.


Come home today, and there's a cryptic voice 
mail about my case, and we'll email you on the 
phone.  Hmm.


Check my email, and whaddya know!  A response 
from FEMA, apologizing for the delay and 
explaining while they can't give my request 
priority, it is now in the pending queue and 
should be reviewed and completed within a week.


I replied back, thanking them, and pointing out 
that had they bothered to acknowledge either of 
my previous efforts to contact them I wouldn't 
have had to resort to getting my congressman 
involvedŠ.

I've been on the receiving end of those, while serving in the military, and
we jumped through hopes like you wouldn't believe to get those answered on
or before the deadline.  Of course, flag level officers need congressional
support to get flag and keep flag and make the next flag...

Too bad Congress can't / won't fire very many federal employees at places
like FEMA for similar transgressions.  I guess a bunch in the IRS that
worked for/with Louis Lerner in suppressing the tea party groups got the
axe, that surprised me.
