Good morning Ms. Lipton,

We have received payment twice for this request, the second one yesterday. The records have been moved to the Office of the Inspector General’s review queue (for those that are pending review for redaction of confidential/exempt information). I have copied their office to see if they can give an estimated response date.

I am returning check number 1146 (the duplicate payment) to your attention at the MuckRock Foundation, 411A Highland Avenue, Somerville, MA 02144.

Sincerely,

Donna Beard
