Public Interest Declassification Board (PIDB); Meeting
Pursuant to Section 1102 of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, which extended and modified the Public Interest Declassification Board (PIDB) as established by the Public Interest Declassification Act of 2000 (Pub. L. 106-567, title VII, December 27, 2000, 114 Stat. 2856), announcement is made for the following committee meeting:
NARA Facility Locations and Hours
NARA proposes to change the hours open to the public for our Kansas City, Missouri, and New York City regional archives. The Kansas City regional archives relocated on March 17, 2009, to the Union Station Complex at 400 West Pershing Road, Kansas City, Missouri. NARA is also proposing to shift the hours open to the public at the New York City regional archives to better serve the public for the range of hours covering the majority of visits. This proposed rule will affect the public.
Records Schedules; Availability and Request for Comments
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) publishes notice at least once monthly of certain Federal agency requests for records disposition authority (records schedules). Once approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory instructions on what happens to records when no longer needed for current Government business. They authorize the preservation of records of continuing value in the National Archives of the United States and the destruction, after a specified period, of records lacking administrative, legal, research, or other value. Notice is published for records schedules in which agencies propose to destroy records not previously authorized for disposal or reduce the retention period of records already authorized for disposal. NARA invites public comments on such records schedules, as required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a).
