Dear FCC FOIA Office,

If I could be allowed to make one amendment to the previous request, which was: I hereby request the following records: All correspondence received between January 1, 2013 and January 1, 2017 by anyone employed by the Federal Communications Commission from Rick Kaplan, Executive Vice President and General Counsel of the National Association of Broadcasters or anyone from the National Association of Broadcasters that mentions or makes reference to or specifically names Rocco Commisso and/or Mediacom Communications Corp. or Mediacom, LLC.

If I could make a change to the date range, instead of January 1, 2013 to January 1, 2017, I would like to request records from January 1, 2012 to January 1, 2017 instead.

Thank you for considering my request for an amendment to the original request.

Sincerely,

Stephen Johnson

From: Federal Communications Commission
