President Obama Revokes Bush Executive Order on Presidential Records


January 21, 2009 – President Obama today revoked the Bush administration’s Executive Order 13233, which severely limited public access to presidential records.  Read SAA's letter of thanks here. SAA supports passage of the Presidential Records Reform Act, which would nullify the EO and establish procedures to ensure timely release of presidential records. See the National Coalition for History website for more.
