House again considers electronic records bill
The House is again set to consider legislation that would expand the National Archives and Records Administration's power to dictate how agencies and the White House preserve electronic records. A similar measure cleared the House in the last session, but was not acted on by the Senate. The bill would amend the Federal Records Act and the Presidential Records Act. Under the proposed legislation, NARA would require agencies to capture, manage, and preserve records in an electronic format and that agency would develop regulations for how agencies maintain electronic records.
