Est. Completion None


From: Shawn Musgrave

To Whom It May Concern:

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

Copies of responses to Congressional Committees from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), January 1, 2013 through October 31, 2015.

As this request is submitted in my capacity as a journalist who has covered the Department of Homeland Security extensively, I assert that I am appropriately categorized as a "media requester" for the purpose of fees. Furthermore, as these documents are of public interest — and will be shared online for the public to view for free — I request that all fees for the processing of this request be waived.

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.
