Information Policy: Public Laws from the 95th Congress.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on House Administration.
This compilation of abstracts provides brief descriptions of the 74 new public laws relating to computers and information policy that were enacted during the 95th Congress. Each of these bills is concerned with information, although the diverse subject matter--e.g., energy and clean water, food and health, foreign investments, ethics in government--received attention from different committees of the House and Senate. These laws are listed in eight categories: (1) creating information inventories, programs, or clearinghouses; (2) providing for the dissemination of information; (3) creating news information systems or computerized data bases; (4) government records, documents, and paperwork; (5) library policies, procedures, and assistance; (6) information disclosures and confidentiality/right of privacy; and (7) other related information legislation.
