Cynthia McKinney Introduces the Tupac Amaru Shakur Records Collection Act of 2005

Democratic Representative Cynthia McKinney has introduced the Tupac Amaru Shakur Records Collection Act of 2005.

Check out these "legislative findings":

The Congress finds and declares that--

(1) all Government records related to the life and death of Tupac Amaru Shakur should be preserved for historical and governmental purposes;

(2) all Government records concerning the life and death of Tupac Amaru Shakur should carry a presumption of immediate disclosure, and all records should be eventually disclosed to enable the public to become fully informed about the history surrounding his life and death;

(3) legislation is necessary to create an enforceable, independent, and accountable process for the public disclosure of such records;

(4) legislation is necessary because Government records related to the life and death of Tupac Amaru Shakur would not otherwise be subject to public disclosure;

(5) legislation is necessary because the Freedom of Information Act, as implemented by the executive branch, is not sufficient to insure the timely public disclosure of records relating to the life and death of Tupac Amaru Shakur; and

(6) only in the rarest cases is there any legitimate need for continued protection of such records.
