Thank you so much for your help! I have a quick question, though. Today we received a letter mentioning that this request has been sent to the Attorney General for a determination regarding this request. To what is this in reference?

Have a lovely weekend!

Dear Sir or Ma’am,

Thank you for your inquiry. Our records show that Cheryl Cowart sent the responsive information by email on May 22nd. Although a ruling from the attorney general was originally requested, that request was withdrawn when our office learned that all responsive information had been released. This request has been closed. If you have any further questions, please let me know.

Respectfully,
Steve Smeltzer
