To Whom It May Concern:

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

All documents and communications related to Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke's travel expenses — including air and vehicle travel, security expenses, food expenditures and hotel accommodations — during his December 4, 2017 trip to Utah to announce the resizing of the Bears Ears National Monument and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

I am a reporter for Pacific Standard magazine, and the requested documents will be made available to the general public. This request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, 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.

Dear Mr. Tobias,

Thank you for your inquiry. At this time we are still waiting on a program
office to send us any potentially responsive records as we do not retain
records in the OS FOIA office. Once we have those records, we can begin
processing them. While we cannot provide you a timeline at this point,
please be assured we are working to complete your requests as promptly as
we can.
Thanks,
Cindy Sweeney
