The National Archives is an agency (as well as the name of the building) of the Allied States government charged with preserving and documenting government and historical records and with increasing public access to those documents, which comprise the National Archives. The National Archives is officially responsible for maintaining and publishing the legally authentic and authoritative copies of acts of Senate, presidential proclamations and executive orders, and federal regulations. The Director of the National Archives, not only maintains the official documentation of the passage of amendments to the A.S. Constitution by state legislatures, but has the authority to declare when the constitutional threshold for passage has been reached, and therefore when an act has become an amendment.
