information collection requirements for requests to waive or reduce 
fees for searching for and reproducing records in response to FOIA 
requests; appeals of denied requests; and requests for expedited 
processing. The information required from the public is necessary to 
justify requests for waivers or reductions in searching or copying 
fees; or to justify expedited processing. Section 9.28(b) provides that 
if the submitter of information designated to be trade secrets or 
confidential commercial or financial information objects to the 
disclosure, he must provide a written statement within 30 days that 
specifies all grounds why the information is a trade secret or 
commercial or financial information that is privileged or confidential.
    The public may examine and have copied for a fee publicly-available
