OpenTheGovernment.org and 24 Organizations Write to Support Passage of H.R. 5811, the Electronic Message Preservation Act

A coalition of 23 organizations joined OpenTheGovernment.org on a letter to Representative Henry Waxman, Chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, supporting passage of H.R. 5811, the Electronic Message Preservation Act. The bill directs the Archivist of the United States to establish standards for the capture, management, and preservation of White House e-mails and other electronic communications and to issue regulations requiring agencies to preserve electronic communications in an electronic format.
