But the Army Corps of Engineers is trying to block our forward progress and keep us from scoring!
The Corps is telling us we have to pay big bucks for documents we’re entitled to under federal law!
We requested documents from the Corps’ Public Affairs Office after we discovered they’re paying a PR company called OPP almost $5 million of our tax payer money to improve the Corps’ image after its levees failed in August 2005.
Levees.org wanted to know more about this PR Campaign by OPP, so we filed a request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) last June.
The Corps partly fulfilled our request but now say we can’t see another page unless we pay! We applied for a waiver – since Levees.org is requesting information for the public good – but we were DENIED.
You can help us! Please make a donation!

We need to raise at least $1000.
