The determination of retention periods is based on a review of the administrative, fiscal, legal, and historical value of the information being created or received in the course of conducting business. Every legislative session, lawmakers propose a multitude of measures that affect the management of existing records or create new types of records.
This year TSLAC is tracking 129 bills (49 state agency, and 80 local government) that we have identified as potentially requiring amendments to state records retention schedules, local government schedules, or agency specific schedules. Bills applicable to both local governments and state agencies were categorized under state agencies; local governments should also check out the bills marked as “Open Meetings” and “Open Records” for state agencies.
