An analysis from the group Reinvent Albany released on Tuesday questions the strength of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s executive order to streamline the appeals process when a Freedom of Information Law request is denied.

Cuomo on Friday vetoed that was designed to reduce the time public agencies have to appeal a judicial decision in granting access to public records from nine months to two months, while also striking down a measure that would have the state pay attorneys’ fees in FOIL-releated cases.

Cuomo in his veto message cited concerns the Legislature wouldn’t be covered by the measures, and has pledged to push to expand FOIL to include more aspects of the Senate and Assembly.

On Saturday, he released an executive order with the broad parameters of the FOIL appeal bill applied to state agencies.

Reinvent Albany notes there’s significant daylight between the bill and the executive order.

For starters, the governor’s executive order doesn’t cover local governments, authorities and school districts or the state attorney general and comptrollers’ offices.

At the same time, five states have similar laws in place that cover attorneys’ fees in FOIL-related cases.
