Subject: Fees

As per your request - please note that while we do not have a written opinion addressing your particular question at this time, it is our opinion that because sending a record electronically does not involve a storage medium, no fee can be charged. E-mailing a copy of the meeting minutes, which are already maintained in .pdf format, involves the transmittal of a record, not the reproduction thereof.

We hope this is of assistance to you.
