From: David Sirota

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New York State Freedom of Information Law (1977 N.Y. Laws ch. 933), I hereby request the following records:

Email correspondence between officials at General Electric and officials at the New York Department of Environmental Conservation's Division of Fish, Wildlife and Marine Resources regarding General Electric's plans to terminate its dredging operations on the Hudson River. I request these correspondence from the dates 1/1/14 to the present. Officials at General Electric include company officials, board members, consultants and lobbyists.

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

Please search for responsive records regardless of format. I request the information in a machine-processable format, such as a spreadsheet (CSV or XLS) or word processor (TXT, DOC, DOCX) format. It can be provided by email, thumb drive, or CD. If it is unavailable in any other format, an OCRed PDF (i.e. searchable) will do.

If it is your position that any portion of the requested records is exempt from disclosure, I request that you provide it with a Vaughn Index/privilege log of those documents.

In the event some portions of the requested records are properly exempt from disclosure, please disclose any reasonably segregable non-exempt portions of the requested records. If it is your position that a document contains non-exempt segments, but that those non-exempt segments are so dispersed throughout the document as to make segregation impossible, please state what portion of the document is non-exempt, and how the material is dispersed throughout the document. If a request is denied in whole, please state specifically that it is not reasonable to segregate portions of the record for release.

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,

David Sirota
