NCH Calls for Public Comment on SBU Guidance

The National Coalition for History recently joined and thirty-two other groups in a letter urging the White House to allow public review and comments on new rules governing the designation of Sensitive But Unclassified (or Controlled Unclassified Information — CUI) that are expected to be released soon.

At issue are the federal government’s attempts to standardize procedures for the treatment of what is referred to as “Sensitive But Unclassified” (SBU) information. There are currently over 100 different markings for sensitive information that has led to over-classification and unnecessary restrictions on public access to information.
