My understanding is that she is leaving now on Tuesday from Anchorage. I will confirm
with Rusty.
The dinner with the sportsmen was supposed to be a hike but instead turned out to not
be a hike but a National Guard helicopter tour of a site part owned by NPS--we
discussed with Jennifer on Friday. For the dinner, each will pay for their portion of the
dinner separately.

Caroline, I reviewed the revised schedule and concur that The
Secretary needs to pay for Mrs Zinke's dinner with the Governor.

I think Tim had the cost for the Secretary 's form . Could you also
provide detailed information on the dinner with the Sportsman's
Group that is scheduled for after the Don Young rece. ion .
Those are the onlv matters I see for the ethics office .

Hi all,

Mrs. Zinke will now
be staying in
Alaska postCODEL, a decision
she
and the Secretary
made on the trip.
The schedule has
been adjusted to
reflect that,
including now
driving from Denali
as was originally
the
plan before the
charter flight.

My concern for now
is primarily the
Monday dinner with
the governors
office, as paid for
by the governors
office. The
Secretary wants
her
to join and has said
he will personally
reimburse them for
her meal. I
know this is taking
place tomorrow and
we're not giving you
much time

so apologies for the
short turn around.

What else do we
need to consider
from a legal/ethics
standpoint?
Please let Rusty
know (cc'ed). I'll be
away from my
phone all day, but
will be back on it
tonight.

Um...

Just got off the phone with Annie from Senator Murkowski's office and she said she flew in early
today with the spouses...I have heard that Mrs. Zinke was now maybe not going to fly out from
Fairbanks Sunday morning...so, I asked Annie if she happened to talk to Mrs. Zinke about her
plans. She said Mrs. Zinke said she was now going to head to Byers Lake and Anchorage with
RKZ and fly out of Anchorage on Tuesday. UGH! We have all kinds of planes, trains and
automobiles manifests to now scramble with.
Including Steve, Micah & Tami on here. The initial intention was for you guys to ride from
Fairbanks in the morning with RKZ. So that the Zinke's can have some down time together on the
long ride, Annie is trying to find transportation for the three of you with Murkowski folks instead.
Once you get to Byers Lake, we are fine (or we were until the new addition...we will have to review
all manifests). Stay tuned on that.

Don't see Micah/Steve/Tami on the email though maybe you bcced them. Lola is going to have to

At MelkA,ya, phones must be turned completely off (not just airplane mode) and in a plastic bag.
Statoil will give us the bags. You can carry your bagged phone in your pocket, but it must be
powered down.

Breakfast at hotel on Saturday doesnat start until 07.00 so unlikely folks will get anything before we
leave to see USMC. All should plan on dining at chow hall. From our liaison there: aCredit Card, or
local cash (NOK 35) (approx. USD$4.28) payable at the Chow Hall. Strongly recommend 1-2
persons pay for all in order to minimize time in line.a Embassy will do our own.

Evening Isaac,
Hereas my wag at working things in. The big takeaways are:
Cancelled the Fjellheisen Tour in Tromso
Earlier start time in Trondheim
Condensed schedule at the pre-positioning caves
Shortened Tour at Pump Station 1 (Alternately, could condense this for Senators/Staff, and let
spouses take the full tour)
I will continue leaning on OSD to refine their flight projections.

Flight from AK

Hey Lola,
I just heard back from the Senate staff coordinating the CODEL trip. On the MILAIR flight, they say:
"MILAIR return flight to DC may or may not happen but if it does the plane will likely leave Sunday morning
around 9:00 am, but that could change. We only have one member returning to DC and DOD might pull the
plane. To be determined at this point. In addition, DOD doesnat like it when members try to get them to fly
their spouses home on MILAIR without the member on the flight. It would be a safer bet to have Mrs. Zinke
travel commercial if she is not staying in Alaska that week."

There's a lot of ifs in that, so let me know if you want me to keep pushing on the MILAIR return
flight (if DoD doesn't pull the plane due to lack of passengers). On that Sunday (5/28) RZ will likely
leave Fairbanks around 9:00AM to drive to Byers Lake for the Memorial Day ceremony with
Senator Murkowski.

RE: CODEL Arctic Energy Travel - press

All,

I discussed press briefly w ith Isaac but wanted to let you know w here we're at so we're all on the same
page.
Our press office thinks Hammerfest is the best press opt ion , since we expect Min Petroleum/Energy to join
us there and the focus of the trip is the Srnzihvit visit. Isaac thought Hammerfest City Hall wou ld be a good
place. Our schedu le is pretty tight so it w ouldn't be a lengthy press avai l but I agree it's the logica l choice.
Question: Does anyone have any objection to mak ing this our on ly press avail of the trip? Both Statoi l and
the military folks at Vcernes likely w ill want photo ops w ith the group, but we'll have our press off ice steer
media to Hammerfest.

A* Our advance officer will coordina te further with the RSO , but he wanted me to ask if a vehicle will be available for Secreta,y
Zinke' s use during the "off' hom s on the evening of May 26? I know that the delegation will mostly travel together in a large
chart.ered vehicle for the maj ority of the trip , but we weren't sure of the an-angement when eve,yone is on their own during
the "off ' hours on May 26. We had no plans to have a vehicle available; RSO may know of other plans by Norway police . If
you would like us to arrange a rental vehicle that Sec Zinke' s se,cu,-ity/staff would drive, we can do that but as with hotels we
need a fund cite to do so. - Thank you . Caroline Boulton and Micah Chamber s (both copied) will let us know if we should
an-ange for a separate vehicle .

Countly Clearances
A* It appears that 'Oslo' is the only option for the 'Clearance Post' on the eCC, but ple ase let me know if that's inco1Tect. Oslo is
con-ect, since we're the only official post in No,w ay so we clear on eCC for entire country . In the "Destination Cities" you
can put Hamme,fe st and/or Trnndhein1. - Thank you .
A* Could you please advise which option we should select for the 'Agency/Section' field? Please sele.ct the Pol/Econ option . Thank you .
A* Is it approp,-iate to list you in the 'POC at Post' field? Yes. My colleague Ted Danowitz, also copied on this email, is my backup
as I will be away the week of May 8. - Thank you .
A* Should we complete an eCC for Secretary Zinke's wife j ust as we would for any other DOI employee ? Or is there a differen t
proce ss for her? Only dire.ct-hire employees need country clearance . You can add a commen t on his eCC that she is
accompanying but she doesn't need a separate one . - Thank you .
A* Please let me know if you have any other recommendation s for the country clearance s to ensure that they are con-ectly routed to
the appropriate individual for approval. Sele.cling Oslo and Pol-Econ will get them to us, thanks for che,cking . - Thank you .

A* I've been told that visas are not required for Norway, but please let me know if that's incon-ect. Correct, visas are not necessa,y .
In fact, since it is a MILAIR flight, inunigra tion may or may not stamp passports on an-ival and departure . They definitely
will if we request it, but if we don 't fonnaily request it and they don ' t have enough staff on hand to send someone to the
separate part of the ai,por t, it ,nigh t not happen . So please let me know if the Secreta,y feels strongly about it. One of the
milita,y escorts likely will colle.ct all passpo,ts anyway, just for access/control. - Thank you . I'm pretty sure we do not
strong ly want stamped passpo1ts if it's not required, but I'll let Caroline or Micah confinn .

Thank you in advance for yotuA* assistance , and please let me know if you need anything from our office for this trip . Are you able to
confinn it will be Secretary Zinke, one staff, and one security on the MILAIR flight? The smaller charter flight from Trom s0 to

Hammerfest and then to Trondheim is a limiting factor. - Our current manifest (DOI) for the MILAIR flight is the following:
Secretary Zinke
Lolita Zinke (spouse)
Micah Chambers (staff)
Sgt. (b) (6), (b) (7)(C) (security)

Hello Kristin. I work in Secretary Ryan Zinke's office and I'm helping to make arrangements for the
upcoming CODEL trip to Norway. Annie Hoefler provided your contact information and said I could reach
out to you directly with a couple of questions. When you have a chance, could you please let me know if you
can provide the following information:
Security
Can you please provide contact information for the RSO for this trip, so I can relay that to our
protection detail? (b) (7)(C), (b) (6)

We plan to send one advance security officer to Norway, in addition to the ride-along security officer.
The advance officer would only provide support for the overnight stay in Trondheim on May 26,
including the "off" hours that evening when there are no scheduled engagements. The advance officer
would arrive on May 23 and depart on May 27. Can you please let me know if we're able to hold a
reservation for our advance officer for those dates at the Scandic Hell hotel? I will ask our travel office

Should we complete an eCC for Secretary Zinke's wife just as we would for any other DOI employee?
Or is there a different process for her? Only direct-hire employees need country clearance. You can
add a comment on his eCC that she is accompanying but she doesnat need a separate one.
Please let me know if you have any other recommendations for the country clearances to ensure that
they are correctly routed to the appropriate individual for approval. Selecting Oslo and Pol-Econ will
get them to us, thanks for checking.
Other
I've been told that visas are not required for Norway, but please let me know if that's incorrect.
Correct, visas are not necessary. In fact, since it is a MILAIR flight, immigration may or may not
stamp passports on arrival and departure. They definitely will if we request it, but if we donat formally
request it and they donat have enough staff on hand to send someone to the separate part of the airport,
it might not happen. So please let me know if the Secretary feels strongly about it. One of the military
escorts likely will collect all passports anyway, just for access/control.
Thank you in advance for your assistance, and please let me know if you need anything from our office for
this trip. Are you able to confirm it will be Secretary Zinke, one staff, and one security on the MILAIR
flight? The smaller charter flight from TromsA, to Hammerfest and then to Trondheim is a limiting factor.

Spouses Ethics Meeting

Hi Lola,
I had mentioned that the White House was planning an ethics briefing for Secretary's spouses this
week, but we finally got details about it today.
Date: 4/27/2017 (Thursday)
Time: 2:00-3:30PM
Location: Indian Treaty Room in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building (room 474--4th floor)
They've asked that you arrive at the entrance on 17th and State Place. They have a tour
scheduled for any spouses that are interested after the briefing so you're welcome to join that!
I will need to confirm your vitals so that we can get you cleared for the White House--they couldn't
find you on file. We can do that tomorrow when you get to DC though.
Let me know if you are unable to make this briefing so I can let the White House know!
Thanks,
Caroline

Sec. Zinke California Travel

Hi Igor and Rachel,
I know Micah Chambers has been in touch with your office regarding Secretary Zinke's plans in
California next week, but am not sure the extent to which you have been informed. My
understanding is that on Thursday, April 12 Rep. McClintock has been invited to join the Secretary
in Sacramento for his morning meetings with DOI staff and then travel to Yosemite with him and
join that tour. Please note that the Secretary does have a meeting with the Governor in between
those two stops.
Our plan for that day is as follows-8:00-8:15 Depart RON en route DOI Facility
8:15-8:45 Meeting with Sacramento DOI Regional Directors
8:45-9:30 All Staff Meeting at DOI Facility // Remarks and Q&A
9:30-9:50 Depart DOI Facility for State Capitol
10:00-11:00 One-on-One Meeting with Governor Brown
11:00-3:00 Drive to Yosemite
3:00-6:00 Tour of Yosemite // To Include: Employee Staff Meeting, Front Line Staff Meeting
in Yosemite Village, TBD Yosemite Gateway Partners Meeting, Drive to South Entrance &
Discuss Forestry Issues
6:00ish TBD Dinner: Local Dinner with Superintendent or Depart for Fresno for Dinner
RON Fresno
There should not be an issue with your boss riding in our vehicle, providing that there is enough
space (the Secretary's wife will be joining this trip), though I do not think we would be able to drop
him off anywhere after the trip that the Secretary wasn't already going.
Please let us know what your office is thinking for the trip as well as who would be staffing your
boss so we can make appropriate plans!
Best,
Caroline

Hi Tim ,
I hand le the Secretaiy's scheduling.
I know that someone had talked to the Secreta1y in person
regardin g the Nati onal Geographic dinner on April 10, however
our office has received no infonnation about the event. Before I
can discuss logistical info1mation, can you send us any
info1m ation about the event, includin g (for our benefit and so
that we can get the event approved by Ethics here) :
aC/ Time
aC/ Location
aC/ Fo1mat of event--is it a discussion or will the Secretaiy be
giving rem aiA*ks
aC/ Is there a topic or theme to the event?
aC/ Who is paying for the event?
aC/ Who else is attendin g the event?
aC/ Attire for the event
We may have mor e follow up questions as well. I believe the
Secretaiy's wife would like to accompany him , though whether
the Secretaiy will be going in his official capaci ty or personal
capacity will dete1mine who will staff him .

Thank you ,

The Hammerfest portion of the tr ip is our main limiting factor. We currently are getting quotes for charter
planes (the runway at Hammerfest is too short for the MILAIR plane). The 19-pax plane is roughly
$35 ,000 and we've also asked for a quote on something larger.
That said, w hile Statoi l can usually accommodate up to 25 visitors at this site, they are hoping to keep the
number to 20 due to maintenance equipment which w ill be on site the day we visit. Depend ing on
number of staff for Secretary Z inke, Secretary Perry (if he confirms) and Senate ENR Comm ittee , we are
already well over that limit.
Secretary Zinke
1 Zinke staff
1 Zinke armed secur ity
1 Norwegian Secur ity Police (PST)*
Secretary Perry
1 Perry staff
1 Perry armed security
1 Norwegian Secur ity Police (PST)*
6 Senators
5 Senate staff
2 military escorts

I-

3 Embassy staff

Current total: 24

*PST requires a 1: 1 ratio to any non-Norwegian armed personne l.
2 Norwegian offic ials (not confirmed yet but given Zinke and possibly Perry it is likely) - they will
meet us there and don't count towards charter plane manifest.
This totals 26 not including Statoil staff (who will meet us there). It does leave out all travel ing fami ly
members (will Secretary Zinke's spouse be jo ining?).

We are meet ing w ith the MFA tomorrow morn ing to go over some detai ls and I'll get everyone an update
