Dear Sir or Madam,

This is a request for information made pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act.

It is my understanding that the National Forest Service has recently won an exemption from the regulatory moratorium which President Bush declared in August, 1992, and that last week NFS sent to OMB the draft of a rulemaking proposal which would amend 36 C.F.R. 2.51 and/or 2.61 concerning public gatherings, assemblies or meetings in the National Forests.

I hereby request a copies of the any documents reports, memos, or other information relating to exemption from the Presidential regulatory moratorium granted with respect to the aforesaid draft rulemaking proposal.

This information will be used solely for educational purposes. Disclosure of the requested document will contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations and activities of the government. Subsequently a waiver of fees would probably be appropriate.

I am anxious to have this information as soon as possible, and do not want consideration of a fee waiver to delay transmission of the requested draft. I don't expect that the requested information will exceed fifty pages in length. However, my financial resources are limited, therefore please obtain approval from me before incurring any expenses in excess of $10.00.

I would appreciate a response within the 10 working days proscribed by law.

Thank you for your assistance.
