From: Shawn Musgrave

To Whom It May Concern:

This is an EXPEDITED request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

-A listing of all states that have been temporarily suspended from the 1033 program over the past 10 fiscal years, including date of suspension, reason for suspension and reason for reinstatement. If such a listing is not available, please send all letters of suspension and reinstatement sent to state coordinators for the past 10 fiscal years.

-A listing of all law enforcement agencies that have been temporarily suspended from the 1033 program over the past 10 fiscal years, including date of suspension, reason for suspension and reason for reinstatement. If such a listing is not available, please send all letters of suspension and reinstatement sent to individual law enforcement agencies for the past 10 fiscal years.

This is an EXPEDITED FOIA request in light of the considerable media coverage of the 1033 program surrounding the ongoing situation in Ferguson, MO. In support of my request for EXPEDITED processing, please note the intense public and Congressional interest in the 1033 program, as evidenced by considerable media coverage as well as the introduction of at least one bill to modify the 1033 program. Furthermore, today the Senate held a hearing on the 1033 program, in which a deputy secretary of the Defense Department provided overall numbers of state coordinators suspended in FY2013 and FY2014. See www.hsgac.senate.gov/hearings/oversight-of-federal-programs-for-equipping-state-and-local-law-enforcement

In further support of my request for expedited processing, please note that I am a journalist with considerable experience covering law enforcement, and specifically law enforcement equipment. My ongoing series on unmanned aerial vehicles (motherboard.vice.com/tag/The+Drone+Census) has garnered nationwide attention for my thorough examination of UAVs as acquired by government agencies across the country. Via MuckRock and extensive freelance relationships, I have a number of outlets for the dissemination of not only the data I request above, but also unique media content that employs editorial skill to distill complex governance matters to a wide audience.

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 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Shawn Musgrave
