All memos, budgets, proposed budgets, presentations, and emails from the dates 01/01/2012 to 04/09/18 mentioning the use of, spending on, and/or consideration of bulletproof shelters for use in schools in the state.

An example of one such company that produces bulletproof shelters is the company called Shelter in Place (http://shelterinplace.com/pricing), mentioned in this local media report, among others covered in the press in various states: http://abc7ny.com/is-this-bulletproof-school-shelter-the-new-normal/3160640/

I am a member of the press and therefore request that fees be waived.
