    I finally got my congressional inquiry sent to the BCNR.

    So after a delay due to this coronavirus I got my congressional sent to find out where my case is. I don’t get why I just can’t get a straight forward answer to my emails but that’s how this clock ticks. Why have an email and a phone number if you’re not gonna respond to it?
