(a) The Secretary of the Archives and Records Commission is directed and authorized to begin not later than thirty (30) days after the effective date of this Resolution1 on examination of the documents, records, papers, and archives located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma which belong to the agencies, authorities, boards, commissions, departments, institutions, instrumentalities, office, officers, officials, and societies of the State of Oklahoma, to determine (a) what part or parts of such documents, records, papers, and archives are to be preserved, (b) what part or parts of such documents, records, papers and archives are to be destroyed or sold as waste, and (c) what part or parts of such documents, records, papers, and archives are to be microfilmed and the original of such documents, records, papers, and archives destroyed or sold thereafter. The Secretary of the Archives and Records Commission is authorized to delegate his executive duties under this subsection.
(b) No document, record, paper, or archive is to be withheld from examination by the Secretary of the Archives and Records Commission on the ground or grounds that the same is a privileged or confidential document, record, paper, or archive. If any statute or statutes of the State of Oklahoma as now enacted create any class of privileged or confidential document, record, paper, or archives and provide any penalty or penalties for disclosure of such document, record, paper, or archive it is the intent of the Legislature that such penalty or penalties not be applied in connection with any examination by the Secretary made for the purpose of compliance with this Resolution. In the event the Secretary examines a confidential or privileged document, record, paper, or archive he is forbidden to divulge or to disclose any information obtained from his examination.
