Communications

From: Benjamin Lesser

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:

A copy of the rules, regulations and policies for access to agency records under the Freedom of Information Law.

According to New York PUBLIC OFFICERS LAW, ARTICLE 6, Section 87(b):

"Each agency shall promulgate rules and regulations, in conformity with this article and applicable rules and regulations promulgated pursuant to the provisions of paragraph (a) of this subdivision, and pursuant to such general rules and regulations as may be promulgated by the committee on open government in conformity with the provisions of this article, pertaining to the availability of records and procedures to be followed, including, but not limited to:

i. the times and places such records are available;
ii. the persons from whom such records may be obtained; and
iii. the fees for copies of records."

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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,

Benjamin Lesser

Mr. Lesser,


What I have located in response to your inquiry, is the resolution
adopted by the Board of Directors in 1978, which states that the
Corporation adopts the "rules and regulations promulgated by the
Committee on Public Access to Records" which I believe is now the
Committee on Open Government.

I have attached the resolution as well as the Committee's guidelines
which were last printed out in 2010. These guidelines are also
available at: http://www.dos.ny.gov/coog/foil2.html

Thank you for your patience in this matter.

Regards,




Patricia Lockhart
