To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request pursuant to Kentucky Open Records Act. On behalf of the Climate Investigations Center (CIC), a national non-profit association of advocates, bloggers and researchers, pursuant to FOIA, I hereby request the following records:

1. Seeking all records, correspondences, documents, or other information exchanged between representatives of National Energy Education Development Program (NEED) and the Commonwealth of Kentucky's Department for Energy Development and Independence (DEDI) regarding the $1 million in funding through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act;
2. Seeking all records, correspondences, documents, or other information exchanged between representatives of National Energy Education Development Program (NEED) and the Commonwealth of Kentucky's Governor's Office of Energy Policy regarding the $100,000 grant to NEED for workshops, awards, and Energy Smart Schools effective August 1, 2007 to June 30, 2008.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. CIC is entitled to a fee waiver because it is a news media organization, and because this request for records concerns activities or operations of the government. Disclosure of the requested records will likely increase public understanding of government operations since CIC has the ability and the intention to effectively convey information contained within the requested records to a broad public audience. Founded in 2014, CIC’s investigative research and reporting has appeared in local and national publications such as the New York Times, the Huffington Post, and the Washington Post. In addition to using the information from this request to generate news stories, CIC would distribute information obtained and inform the public at large through various online platforms (such as http://climateinvestigations.org/).

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Daniel Sherwood

From: Secretary of State of Kentucky
