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

Mr. Morisy,

We are searching for records responsive to your request; however, your request is quite broad. I believe that we would be able to respond sooner if you would be willing to accept a list of documents. Then you could select what documents you were actually interested in. Please advise if this is something you would accept.
