The Issue: The proposed FY2013 state budget released by NJ Governor Chris Christie calls for splitting the State Division of Archives and Records Management (DARM), transferring its records management program to the Department of the Treasury and leaving the State Archives behind in the Department of State. This proposal would sever a function of government that was integrated nearly a century ago, at the urging of New Jersey’s history community, to ensure public records preservation and improved government accountability. Separating these integrated and interdependent functions will seriously hamper the effective management of records and archives for State and local government, and put New Jersey’s documentary heritage at risk.
