I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest.

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.

Mr. Lasser,

We have received your FOIA request. The request has been assigned EFTS #
BLM-2014-00799 and Nevada tracking number NV-2014-078. Please cite either
number in any future communications with our office regarding your request.

You requested a fee waiver. As a matter of policy, the Department of the
Interior does not bill requesters for FOIA fees incurred in processing
requests when their fees do not exceed $50.00, because the cost of
collection would be greater than the fee collected. See 43 C.F.R. ยง
2.49(a)(1). We do not estimate fees will be incurred for processing this
request, therefore, we are not evaluating your request for a fee waiver at
this time. If at any point fees are incurred, we will stop processing the
request and inform you of the estimated fees and the fee waiver status.

Your request falls into the Normal Processing track. We expect to have this
request completed by the due date of 9/22/14. We will inform you if there
will be a delay.

Please let me know if you have any questions,

Michelle Piland
