This is an automated reply to inform you that National Archives and Records Administration received your e-mail.

Thank you for your email. Congress has restored funding of appropriated activities and NARA is in the process of resuming normal operations. We are currently working on logging in the requests received during the government shutdown. Please be patient as responses to emails and requests may be slower than usual; please note that submitting duplicate requests will increase wait times.

If you have any questions, you can call our office at 301-837-3190.

Thank you.

Dear Mr. Kaufmann,

Your request has been forwarded to the Center for Legislative Archives.
The Center provides access to the records of House and Senate Committees -
the best institutions in which to find records related individual members
of Congress tend to be those housing members' personal papers collections.
I would recommend contacting the University of Delaware:

http://www.lib.udel.edu/ud/spec/findaids/biden/

Please be advised:

The records you have requested are not subject to the FOIA. Pursuant to 36
CFR 1250.6 (c) FOIA applies only to the records of the executive branch of
the Federal government; therefore it is not applicable to the records of
Congress and the legislative branch.

Please let me know if you have any questions,

Adam Berenbak
