On January 14, the US House of Representations unanimously approved the Presidential and Federal Records Act Amendments of 2014. The legislation, H.R. 1233, updates selected provisions of the Presidential Records Act and the Federal Records Act. For example, the bill imposes a time limit during which a former president must assert any claim of privilege to a record once the Archivist of the United States has decided to make that record available to the public. The amendments also call for a process to manage the release of records when such a claim of privilege is made.
