To Lisa Weitekamp:

Pursuant to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, 5 ILCS 140, I hereby request the following records:

– Records of admissions to and releases from restrictive housing, administrative segregation, and other disciplinary housing units

I understand that the Act permits a public body to charge a reasonable copying fee not to exceed the actual cost of reproduction and not including the costs of any search or review of the records. However, the law (Act 5 ILCS 140/6) allows you to impose a waiver or reduction of fees when information is sought in the public interest, as is the case for this request. We respectfully request a waiver of these fees as we are affiliated with an educational or noncommercial scientific institution, and this request is made for a scholarly or scientific purpose and not for a commercial use.

I look forward to hearing from you in writing within five working days, as required by the Act.

Thank you for considering and responding to this request.

Sincerely,

Forrest Behne
