This bill — known as the MAR-A-LAGO Act — would require the President to keep and maintain public visitor logs for all official business, whether it’s conducted at the White House or another location where the president and vice president regularly conduct official business. The requirement would take effect 30 days after enactment, and the public database containing the information would be updated every 90 days.
There would be several exceptions to the requirement:
If a visit is purely personal or if revealing a record would undermine personal privacy, raise law enforcement concerns, or threaten national security.
Logs of sensitive meetings would include only the number of visitors in attendance and their publication could be delayed until the president determines its no longer sensitive.
This bill’s full acronym stands for the Making Access Records Available to Lead American Government Openness Act. It's named after a Florida golf course resort built by President Trump where he likes to host visitors for business meetings.
