From: Michael Morisy

To Whom It May Concern:

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

All records, including emails, in your agency's Office of General Counsel discussing which fee category is appropriate for requests submitted by MuckRock or the FOIA Group, Inc. This includes both: a) requests submitted by one of these businesses on its own behalf; and b) requests submitted by third parties in their own names using one of these businesses as an intermediary.

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,

Michael Morisy

Hello Mr. Quick,

This FOIA request did not receive a tracking number. If one could be provided now, it would be greatly appreciated.
