Hi Ms. Wadlington,

Thanks for the quick response! It may be the MuckRock system, but I don't see an attached letter. Could I ask you to send it again, if that isn't too much trouble?

Thanks,
Alex Richardson

From: Alex Richardson

Hi Ms. Wadlington,

Thanks for getting back to me - I'm going to try to narrow this request down. Every state is a little different and I have a similar request in with every state, so bear with me. (If you have suggestions, though you are under no obligation to provide them, I would be happy to hear them!)

- The period of the request may be limited to the period from Jan. 2010 to the present.

- I would like to request electronic requests between the attorney general's office and email addresses ending in the domain "@ALEC.org"

- As for the keyword search, is it possible for you to perform a search of electronic communications by keyword? Assuming that you have a database of these communications, it seems likely that a keyword search is possible. If not, let me know and I'll think up another approach.

Thanks again, let me know if this helps to make things more manageable.

Best,
Alex Richardson
