Thank you for the follow up. We are working through our backlog and have had both an increase in requests and a reduction in staff, so it is taking longer than originally anticipated. We are also coordinating referrals and consultations with other agency components on certain documents. I hope to have these documents to you within 45-60 days.

Please let me know if I can provide any additional information.
Best regards,
Scott
