Well it is great to see some rational decision making coming out of the Whitehouse these days. Today I note Obama’s Executive Order on Presidential Records has been added to the Whitehouse website.
Hopefully this will help fulfill one of the many things on Michel-Adrien’s Wish List!
Here’s a snippet:
“By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to establish policies and procedures governing the assertion of executive privilege by incumbent and former Presidents in connection with the release of Presidential records by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) pursuant to the Presidential Records Act of 1978, it is hereby ordered as follows…”
By the way, Obama’s Executive Order – Ethics Commitments by Executive Branch Personnel has also been posted.
Happy New Year!
