Are you saying that you have no index, list or other way to search for classified records? How would you know which records are classified and which are not?

Would you like me to resubmit this request so I have new appeal rights or would you like to issue a new final response to this request so I can appeal without you having to open a new case? It seems that the time allotted to appeal the first determination has already passed.

From: hq.foia@epa.gov

Request EPA-HQ-2014-001449 has been processed with the following final disposition: No records

From: Environmental Protection Agency

A fix is required to perfect the request.
