Dear Senator Corey Booker (D. N.J.),
As I am one of your fellow New Jersey constitutes, I request that as a member of the relevant oversight committee of the Senate you request the committee chairman to schedule oversight hearings on the JFK Act both before and after the October 24, 2017 sunset provisions are enacted.
It has been reported that you played a key role in the recent passage of the FOIA Reform law. That focus and persistence will be necessary in calling for JFK Act oversight hearings because the same forces that opposed FOIA reform have kept JFK Act oversight hearings from from happening for the last 18 years.
The same forces that fought for a transparent and open government in FOIA reform must also fight for the strict enforcement of the JFK Act of 1992, a law that was unanimously passed by Congress and signed into law by President George H. W. Bush on October 24, 1992.
Will you please be the champion of an open and transparent government where the laws of the land are strictly enforced to the spirit and letter of the law and call for these hearings?
Thank you for your time and interest in this matter.
William E. Kelly, Jr.
Browns Mills, N. J.
