The Honorable George W. Bush
President of the United States
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20502

Dear Mr. President:

As the year comes to a close, I want to draw your attention to several outstanding requests for information that have been sent by me along with other senior members of the Committee on Science. There are six letters that were sent to you or executive agencies under your direction which have never been substantively responded to and another two letters that received only a partial response....

...Therefore I ask that you direct your Administration to provide full responses to our outstanding requests (list attached) by January 10, 2006. Further, I ask that you commit to providing complete, timely responses to our letters in the next year. While you attend to the efforts to bring the fruits of democracy to people in distant lands, I am sure you share my desire to see that our own government becomes a model for transparency and accountability, principles that are the essence of democracy.
