WASHINGTON, July 2 (UPI) -- Some Freedom of Information Act requests filed 20 years ago with U.S. agencies still have not been answered, according to a new survey.

The National Security Archive at George Washington University in Washington released the Knight Open Government Survey Monday.

What it found is that the 40-year old law has been only partly effective in compelling the government to either produce certain data and information or justify why it refuses to release it.
