Dear Russ Kick,

Thank you for checking in. It is hard to give an estimated date of when a final FOIA response will go out due to so many contributing factors in the process. We are still processing your FOIA request along with many others. There are many cases ahead of yours, some are bigger than others and we have to conduct a line by line review. This takes a lot of time. Once completed I will send a final package to you, unfortunately I do not have a date of when your case will be completed. If you have not received a letter by I July 2019 then please contact me for an update.

Thank You for your understanding,
