Dear Mr. Loury [our president],

Thank you for writing to the Office of the Illinois Attorney General with your request for information pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act (5 ILCS 140/1 et seq. (West 2010)).

In e-mails received on January 3, 2013 and January 4, 2013, you requested “a copy of the name, title and position, public body, address, city, state, ZIP code, email and phone number for any and all individuals who’ve registered [for the Office of the Attorney General’s electronic FOIA training] * * * since 2010 and who listed a ZIP code of 60601, 60602, 60603, 60604 or 60606.”

Please be advised that we are extending the time within which to respond by fie business days, as allowed by sections 3(e)(ii) and (e)(vo) of FOIA (5 ILCS 140/3(e)(ii),(e)(vi)(West 2010)) because:

(ii) the request requires the collection of a substantial number of specified records; [and]

(vi) the request for records cannot be compiled with by the public body within the time limits prescribed by paragraph (c) of the Section without unduly burdening or interfering with the operations of the public body[.]

If you should have any questions, please contact me.

Very truly yours,
