Re: Freedom of Information Law Request
July 10, 2007

As a follow-up to my June 27, 2007 request for records under the New York Freedom of Information Law, I want to make it clear that I also request records through the end of June 2007.

The records I request identify the use of the state aircraft by Gov. Eliot Spitzer, Lt. Gov. David Paterson, Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, Assembly Minority Leader James Tedisco and Senate Minority Leader Malcolm Smith.

Please include any materials that explain the purpose of the trips, itineraries, manifests and the schedules for Gov. Spitzer and Lt. Gov. Paterson - an anyone else on the list for which you have such materials - for the days in which they used the state aircraft for any purpose.

Please provide any and all materials relating to this request as soon as possible.

Thank you.
