Product Liability Reform Act, 1986, 1989
Collection Description & Creator Information
These records have been arranged into several groupings, according to the legislative aide who produced them. Generally speaking, records are arranged by topic.
During the first round of processing, from 1999-2001, each file was reviewed and the following record types were discarded: newspaper and magazine clippings without markings; widely-available publications from the federal government, senate, lobbying groups, and political action committees; copies of bills and senate resolutions, unless marked; position papers; empty envelopes; copies and duplicates of materials already in the collection; empty files; and congressional record statements or introductions to amendments and bills.
- Processing Information
This collection was processed from 1997-2000 by project archivist Kristen Turner, special collections assistant Stacey Peeples, and Meghan Glass '01, and in 2012 by Maureen Callahan.
