Est. Completion None
No Responsive Documents


From: Natalie Voss

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

Documentation of the results of hair testing performed on horses in 2019 and 2020 -- both lab result reports and any reports made to the commission or commission staff about the identity of samples. I am also requesting a copy of any email correspondence to or from commission employees about the results of hair testing as it relates to clenbuterol.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 3 business days, as the statute requires.

This request is filed by Nicole Kanu, a citizen of Arkansas, in coordination with Natalie Voss.

From: Department of Finance and Administration

Thank you for the attached Freedom of Information Act request.

Due to the fact hair testing did not take place in 2019 or 2020, we do not have any records responsive to your request.
This was confirmed by our staff and Veterinarian that oversees testing.

If you have questions or need additional information, please let us know how we can help.

I appreciate it.
