The story of American history is built on the framework of government records like birth, marriage, and death certificates. This bill will help local governments preserve their records to aid the future work of historians.
For this little bit of good government Rep. Maurice Hinchley is this week's Backbencher of the Week. Congratulations.
P.S. Rep. John McHugh is the ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee and therefore not a backbencher.
