Bill requiring agencies to retain emails gets Senate Judiciary Committee nod

Bill requiring agencies to retain emails gets Senate Judiciary Committee nod

Legislation that would prohibit agencies from destroying emails for at least 2 years was unanimously approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee on a 7-1 vote.

AB 1184, by Assemblyman Todd Gloria (D-San Diego) would require state and local agencies to retain every writing containing information relating to the conduct of the public’s business transmitted by electronic mail for at least 2 years unless a longer retention period is required by statute or regulation.

The bill will next be heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee in August.
