Scope and Content Note

Executive Chamber staff maintained these records as a central file of governor's press releases concerning all aspects of state government.

Occasionally a press release will include, or consist entirely of, the text of a piece of legislation, a statement by the governor, an Executive Order or proclamation, or a government report.

The press releases concern numerous issues such as: promoting business and employment; crime prevention and expansion of correctional services; health care costs and programs; energy conservation and development; mass transit financing; prevention of domestic violence; highway maintenance and construction; and neighborhood preservation programs.
