There have been significant gains made in the management and preservation of records of local governments since the implementation of the Local Government Records Law in 1996. Although the progress achieved has not been realized in all local governments, there are concentrated efforts underway in at least one-quarter of the state's eighty-two counties to establish a clear records management and 5 archives function within county government. The same type of effort is found in the larger municipalities within the state.
