(Newser) – The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum is set to begin accepting Freedom of Information Act requests for records from Bush's presidency. The Dallas library will start taking requests today, which marks five years from the end of Bush's presidency. Access to the records is governed by the Presidential Records Act, which says the records may be requested by the public five years after the administration ends. The library says all requests must be in a written format and must state that the request is being made under the Freedom of Information Act. The volume and complexity of the records means granting requests will take time, the library says. (Read more George W. Bush stories.)
