To Whom It May Concern:

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

All records which discuss the status of the healthcare.gov website during the shutdown including any justification to keep it open while closing other government websites. Please include all records before the shutdown which discuss how to handle the situation and records from during the shutdown. Further, include, but do not limit the responsive records to emails to and from any CMS or HHS staff member on this topic.

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,

Jason Smathers
