Thanks so much, Shannon. Please update my request "for all materials pertaining to" the WOTUS letter signed by the attorney general. I mistakenly left the "all materials pertaining to" out of my original request.

Thanks for your understanding.

Best,

Jamie

Ms. Corey,

We are slightly confused on your request. You state you want the letter to EPA administrator Scott Pruitt, but then you included the letter in your email to us, meaning you already have the letter that you seek. Could you clarify what you are requesting from this office? Thank you.

Shannon Dirmann
Assistant Attorney General
