From: Carlton Purvis

Dear FOIA Officer,

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

The final report on Operation Medicine Delivery, the anthrax response exercise which took place May 5-6, 2012 across the Minneapolis St.-Paul area.

A summary of the final report was released to the media in August 2012, but what I'm looking for is the actual final report.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Carlton Purvis
