Please cite this number in any future communications with our office regarding your request. Fee Category and Fee
We have classified you as a representative of the news media.  As such, we may charge you for some of our duplication costs, but we will not charge you for our search or review costs; you also are entitled to up to 100 pages of photocopies (or an equivalent volume) for free. See .  If, after taking into consideration your fee category entitlements, and our processing costs are less than $50.00, we will not bill you because the cost of collection would be greater than the fee collected.
