Good Afternoon Mr. King,

On December 5, 2018 you filed an open records request for documents relating to the appointment and reappointment of James Balli to the Immigration Enforcement Review Board.  On December 7, 2018, we provided you with a copy of a letter from Speaker Ralston documenting his original appointment.  This was the only document we had available at that time.  Chairman Balli has subsequently located a reappointment letter dated September 11, 2015.   Therefore, we wanted to pass this on to you as well.

The attached document includes a copy of the original appointment and 2015 reappointment letter.

Good Morning Mr. King,

In response to your open records request dated December 5, 2018, I respectfully submit the attached letter from 2014 that appoints Mr. Balli to the Immigration Enforcement Review Board.  Neither Chairman Balli nor I have a copy of the letter that reappointed him to the Board.  The official records for appointments are maintained by the Clerk of the House.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
