NARA Proposes Rule on Public Use of National Archives Building

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) published a proposed rule in the Federal Register on April 4, 2008, to amend its regulations on public use of the National Archives Building in Washington, DC, for meetings or special events.

This proposal incorporates changes in available space as a result of the renovation of the National Archives Building by identifying the kinds of space available and procedures for requesting use. NARA also proposes to charge fees for the use of public areas in the National Archives Building in Washington.
