The President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 was signed into law by President George H. W. Bush on 26 October 1992. The law mandates that no JFK assassination records could remain classified beyond 25 years after the enactment of the act: i.e. October 26, 2017. 


  • THERE ARE 5 MILLION PAGES OF RECORDS IN THE JFK ACT COLLECTION.
  • There are 318,886 documents in the JFK Act database.
  • 11% of the documents have partial redactions.
  • 3,603 documents are withheld in full.


These figures do not include many hundreds—perhaps thousands—of documents that are already supposed to be released but are not available.  NARA has put  U. S. Government agencies on notice that the withheld material is going to be released in 2017 unless they appeal to the President to prevent it.
