To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Nebraska Public Records Statutes (Neb. Rev. Stat. § 84-712), I hereby request the following records:
1) A copy of the department's tax credit tracking system, as described in Nebraska Revised Statute 77-2909(5): "The department shall develop a system to track the transfer, sale, and assignment of credits and to certify the ownership of the credits."
I ask that all fees be waived for these requests as I am a journalist employed by the Lowell Sun and I intend to use the requested records to publish articles in the public interest and not for any commercial purpose.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 4 business days, as the statute requires.
Mr. Feathers please find the Department’s response attached to this email. Thank you and Happy Independence Day.
