Steven Hensen, head of Technical Services for Duke's Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library, testified before the House Subcommittee on Information Policy, Census and National Archives on 1 March. Hensen's statement is available at http://archivists.org/
While serving as president of the Society of American Archivists, Hensen testified against Executive Order 13233, which reversed the intent of the 1978 Presidential Records Act by giving a sitting president (and even ex-presidents and their families) the authority to withhold release of a previous president’s records. This issue has come to forefront again with discussion of placing President Bush's library at Southern Methodist University.
