I am a member of the news media and request classification as such. I have previously written about the government and its activities, with some reaching over 100,000 readers in outlets such as Gizmodo, MuckRock, Motherboard, Property of the People, Unicorn Riot, and The Outline, among others. As such, as I have a reasonable expectation of publication and my editorial and writing skills are well established. In addition, I discuss and comment on the files online and make them available through non-profits such as the library Internet Archive and the journalist non-profit MuckRock, disseminating them to a large audience. While my research is not limited to this, a great deal of it, including this, focuses on the activities and attitudes of the government itself. As such, it is not necessary for me to demonstrate the relevance of this particular subject in advance.

As my primary purpose is to inform about government activities by reporting on it and making the raw data available, I request that fees be waived.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Emma Best

Dear Ms. Best,

In regard to your Right to Know request received on April 23, 2020, please be advised that, due to the ongoing public health state of emergency related to COVID-19 declared on March 13, 2020 at both the state and federal level, we will not be able to begin to work on your request immediately. The staff needed to respond are currently engaged full time in responding to issues arising from the state of emergency or are working remotely due to the emergency and do not have the access to documents or databases needed to locate or review documents for your request. We hope that this will change, even if the state of emergency continues for some time, but cannot be certain at this time. Your request is important. We will provide an estimate of how long it will take to respond as soon as possible, but no later than June 27, 2020.
