In lieu of an appeal for documents that have not been finalized, would it be possible to simply send me the documents in question (once they have been gathered and sent to Senator Markey)?

Thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to your reply.

From: Smith, Celeste

Mr. Roberts, we did a search for the letter you are requesting and the response has not been issued yet. I confirmed this on the day I provided you with the no records response.

You may submit a new request for this information, but I would advise you wait a couple weeks. Hopefully, the response will be finalized in the near future.
Thanks,
