Attention: Work Process Unit

Hello,

I agree to pay fees up to $70 for the processing of this request (ID: 1181830-000). However, I ask that my fees be assessed as a news media requester and that the fee waiver provisions created to address requests fulfilled after the statutory time period has expired be included in the calculation of the final fees (i.e., after the request is over 20 business days old, or 30 business days old when exceptional circumstances are present, all fees are waived).

Thanks

Tom Nash
