Dear Mr. Ruizesparza,

I have made some initial inquiries regarding your FOIA request and determined that your request, as currently stated, is unduly burdensome to process. As an initial matter, CTA is not able to perform global keyword searches of all CTA electronic correspondence for responsive records. Furthermore, to complete individual searches of every CTA e-mail account, including the comprehensive review that would be required to identify all responsive records and to remove all exempt material, would be very burdensome and could not be accomplished in a reasonable time, particularly within the short time frames available under FOIA. Therefore, pursuant to Section 3(g) of FOIA, CTA is extending to you the opportunity to reduce your request to more manageable proportions or to consult with me in attempt to do so.

Please contact me if you have any questions or if you wish to confer regarding your request.

Sincerely,
