From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
The University System of Georgia moved closer to managing the Georgia Archives under a bill the Senate Higher Education Committee passed Wednesday.
House Bill 287 would transfer the archives from the Secretary of State’s Office, where the program faced steep cuts because of lagging state revenue.
The bill, which has already been approved by the full House, would transfer the archives starting July 1. The University System has already formed a task force to recommend how to handle the transition.
