President Signs Permanent Paper Law

On October 11, President Bush signed into law Senate Joint Resolution 57, To Establish a National Policy on Permanent Papers. This has been referred to earlier as the Pell Resolution (APA, Dec. 1988, p. 55) and, while it was in the House, House Joint Resolution 226, or the Williams Resolution-its new number, as a law, is 101-423. It makes "Urgent recommendations" about the use of "acid-free permanent papers" but limits requirements to publication of important government records and the mechanism of monitoring process in implementing the national policy.

The final form of this law will be available in printed form in about two weeks, or about the time the readers receive this issue of the newsletter. It will be printed in the Federal Register. A copy of the bill as passed by Congress is available from Congress: call 202-225-3121 and ask for the Document Room.
