This is a quick follow up to my request for records that refer to use of software called "DaVinci" and/or "Galileo". Due to a technical error, the request letter cited the incorrect law. Instead, it should have cited the Missouri Sunshine Law and the Missouri Public Records Law.

Thank you for your help,

Runa A. Sandvik
