Follow up to Last Week’s NYSTA FOIL Adventure

Look up at the sky, and what do you see? Endless space.

Something else that’s endless: the rabbit hole one falls into when making a FOIL request of the New York State Thruway Authority. Turns out I’m not alone.

CBS6 newscaster and reporter Greg Floyd described his nearly year-long attempt to get financial information about the new Capital Region Welcome Center.

And although some of the information I asked for was revealed in a press release last Friday, Records Access Officer Jill B. Warner told me:

“We are performing a diligent search for records responsive to your request. We will notify you of our progress by March 3, 2020. Copies of responsive documents are available pursuant to the Freedom of Information Law Section 87(1)(b) & (c).”

Now it’s moot; however, no one is alone for long in the NYSTA FOIL rabbit hole. My journey began with floating concrete batch plants . . .

I’d like to know what you think.
