Good afternoon,

This morning I received a cost estimate of $72.00 - payment that was required before your agency could begin work on my request. I requested a fee waiver and then this afternoon I received a notice that there were no responsive documents. Can you please clarify how this happened?

Thanks,
Carolyn
