To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
All DHS Weekly Cabinet Report to White House weekly reports created between July 7, 2009 through the date this request is processed.

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.

The Department of Homeland Security called, and asked if requester would be willing to modify request to be from January to May 1st, 2009. Linda, with DHS, said that those materials had already been vetted and could be produced "much quicker." She noted she was available to talk 7:00 - 3:30 Eastern Time most days at 703-235-0790.
This is in response to the message left by Linda concerning my FOIA request for all DHS Cabinet Reports to White House after 7/7/09.
You requested that I limit my request to January through May 1st, 2009. However, this will not work as my interest is solely in those created after 7/7/09. If reviewing and redacting the requested reports is time consuming, I ask that you begin at the most recently created report and work backwards, providing me with interim releases as often as possible.
Thank you for your help.
Can you update me on the status of this request?
<i>Via phone, the FOIA officer said it is progressing, but sheer number of agencies has consumed a lot of time in terms of back and forth. For updates, you can call 1-703-235-2390. However, the upcoming Federal furlough.</i>
