ALA, Other Groups Urge Movement on Presidential Records Act Amendments of 2007

On November 19, ALA, along with several other organizations, sent a letter to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, urging movement on the Presidential Records Act Amendments of 2007 (H.R. 1255, S. 886).

Excerpt of letter

The American people should not be denied their basic right to have the information they need to hold their government accountable for its actions. If you fail to bring this bill to the Senate floor, the clamor for more transparency will continue while a veil of secrecy will remain in place long after the Bush Administration has left office. Please bring the Presidential Records Act Amendments of 2007 (H.R. 1255/S. 886) to the floor now.
