Dear Taylor Amarel,

In order to quickly process your FOIA I will need to know what you believe
the "SEC" represents. For example, it could mean "secretary" or the
"Securities Exchange Commission (SEC)." I'm sure there are a myriad of
examples, so any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

I also would like to know if you are interested in any of the news articles
that might also be sent to them, ie. Washington Post, Politico, Government
Executive, etc? This means only the ones they receive, not the ones they
comment on.

Kind regards.

From: Taylor Amarel Scott

Mr. Scanlon,

Thank you for your thoughtful response. To clarify:

I am only seeking records with the non-case sensitive keyword "SEC", if "SEC" is referring to the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC).

I am not interested in receiving any news articles that are just sent to them.

If the amount of information that results from this search is still too voluminous, you may further narrow the scope by only releasing records that contain the text "@sec.gov" somewhere within the email header or email body. This would catch any email chain or message if some part or thread of the message was sent to, from, or copied to someone with a "@sec.gov" email address.

I hope that helps. Happy to provide further clarification if needed.

All the best,
Taylor
