Editorial: Lawmakers, don't be too quick to hit delete
How long should governmental agencies be required to retain emails before purging them? Longer than you might first think. A measure working its way through the Minnesota Senate would require schools, cities, townships, counties, etc., to retain electronic records for at least 18...
