To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
A copy of all responses sent to Congressional committees between Jan.1, 2008 and the date that this request is processed. These communications are stored together and should be easily accessible.

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.

Dear Mr. Morisy:
We need to clarify and/or narrow your FOIA request. There are several categories of records that are responsive but not likely helpful to you. These include routine reports to committees involving a high volume of paper. These may simply raise your potential fees. This is easiest if done by telephone, but we do not have a contact number for you. Please call at your convenience to discuss.
Attached is the FDIC's fee estimate for processing.
Thanks for your time on the phone just now.
I agree to limit this request to communications generated between Jan. 1, 2011 and Dec. 31, 2012, and I agree to pay fees of up to $250. I do not waive my right to appeal fees if I believe they are improperly assessed, but am willing to pay the down payment in order to continue processing this request when notified of the new estimated total fees.
Thank you for your assistance in narrowing and clarifying this request; it is much appreciated.
