To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Open Public Records Act ("OPRA"), I hereby request the following records:

- Specific safety inspection, engineering or other reports and/or memos about the structural integrity, longevity and ongoing usability of the current Hudson River tunnel that New Jersey Transit utilizes for its rail service. This includes any reports by New Jersey Transit officials themselves, or any reports that New Jersey Transit has from other agencies or consultants.

I hereby request such reports and/or memos from 1/1/2016 to the present.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. IBT/Newsweek is an award-winning journalism outlet and these documents are of significant public importance.

In the event that some records are exempt or redacted, we request that other records that are not exempt or redacted be released. If it is your position that some or all records are exempt from the open records law, IBT/Newsweek requests that you immediately forward a privilege log/Vaughn Index setting forth each withheld document with sufficient information “respecting the basis of the privilege-confidentiality-exception claim vis a vis each document.” Id. (quoting Hartz Mountain Indus., Inc. v. N.J. Sports & Exposition Auth., 369 N.J. Super. 175, 185 (App. Div.), certif. denied, 182 N.J. 147 (2004)). See also Newark Morning Ledger Co. v. New Jersey Sports & Exposition Auth., 423 N.J. Super. 140, 162 (App. Div. 2011) (“OPRA generally places the burden upon the custodian of a public record to state the ‘specific basis' for the denial of access…In so doing, the reasons for withholding documents must be specific.”).

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 7 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

David Sirota
