From: Jason Smathers

To Whom It May Concern:

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

All receipts, expense reports, budget requests, and any other records showing expenses involved where the expense was related to an offsite meeting, gathering party or celebration where at least 25% of the AAA staff were invited. You may limit records to those relating to off site gatherings in calendar year 2013.

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,

Jason Smathers

Concerning this request, I agree to fees up to $12 billed under the "other" requester fee category. If fees are expected to exceed this amount, please let me know so that I can either adjust my willingness to pay fees or attempt to narrow the scope of this request.

I understand your concern over my several requests in a single day. However, I think we can agree that any reasonable review of these requests will find a sweeping range in topics. Each request is on s separate subject and are linked only by being submitted to your office on the same day. There was no attempt to avoid fees in the separation of requests into multiple requests. Rather, a unique request was made for each unique subject matter. Further, I think you are aware that the FOIA does not allow for a request to be denied based on the mere fact that you believe multiple requests are on the same subject and require consolidation. If for some reason you will not process my requests individually and insist on consolidation, please provide notice that you are doing so along with appeal rights and details so that I can escalate this matter.

Thank you very much for your reconsideration. I hope we are able to settle this matter without escalate.

I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have no commercial interest in this request. I am seeking these records for personal interest alone. I am not an owner nor an employee of MuckRock and have no financial interest in the posting of the documents on MuckRock. I am however interested in providing the records to the public free of charge, which will be accomplished by MuckRock. Therefore, this request should be placed in the "all other" fee category.

I agree to fees up to $12 billed in the "all other" fee category. If fees exceed this amount, please provide me with an itemization of proposed charges so I may either amend my request or expand my willingness to pay fees.
