Governor Cuomo’s office responds to our 2014 FOIL request

On February 22nd, many of us sent a FOIL request to the office of Governor Cuomo to send us a list of Resolutions he has received on the SAFE act.  April 15th we got a response:

 

Dear Mr. Hempel:

This letter responds to your correspondence dated February 22, 2014 which, pursuant to FOIL, requested:

lists of the following categories:

1. all counties which have sent a copy of a resolution or other statement regarding the SAFE act or second amendment or gun rights

2. all cities which have sent a copy of a resolution or other statement regarding the SAFE act or second amendment or gun rights

3. all towns which have sent a copy of a resolution or other statement regarding the SAFE act or second amendment or gun rights

4. all villages which have sent a copy of a resolution or other statement regarding the SAFE act or second amendment or gun rights

5. all law enforcement groups which have sent a copy of a resolution or other statement regarding the SAFE act or second amendment or gun rights

6. all other governmental bodies which have sent a copy of a resolution or other statement regarding the SAFE act or second amendment or gun rights

In each of these lists, provide the name of the entity and whether the resolution or statement was in favor of the SAFE act, in opposition, or neutral.

The Executive Chamber has conducted a diligent search for the records you request. Although we do not possess lists containing the information you seek, we located eight hundred seventy-one (871) pages of resolutions and official statements that respond to your request. You may access the records here: https://www.hightail.com/download/elNLRGwzQVNRR2RjR05Vag. Please note that this link will expire after thirty (30) days.
