Dear Mr. Knibbs,
I have not gotten a reply from you since 12-12-06 and wondered if there was a problem. All this back and forth communication is a waste of time when TCEQ should have requested this information from you directly in the first place. I consider this a bad faith action since my original request to TCEQ was on 19-Nov-06; and, I would like the chemical analysis released asap.
This is the same chemical analysis that I approached my elected official(s) about, many months back. Surely someone has access to this analysis/analyses under under public-information-law without "clearing it" with the "client".
If your company wants to show that it operates legally/above-board, then release the analyses to my regulatory officials and elected officials asap (which you indicated did not require the permission of the "client") so that I may get a copy via open records law.
