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.
To Whom It May Concern,
I am Steve Cook, Chief Counsel for the Arkansas State Senate. I am responding to the Freedom of Information request you submitted to Senator John Cooper requesting calendars for Senator Cooper from December 2015 to present and for visitor logs from December 2015 to present. The information you requested does not exist. Senator Cooper has no such information nor does the Arkansas State Senate. Please be informed that the "Arkansas Freedom of Information Act", contrary to the implication of its name, provides access to public records, but not to "information". The Act specifically provides that entities to which the Act applies are not required to create new records of formulate information in response to a FOIA request.
There are no files associated with this request.
