Spending Bill Aims to Bar Personal Email Accounts

Spending Bill Aims to Bar Personal Email Accounts

A provision in the proposed $1.1 trillion government spending bill aims to block some federal workers from using a personal email account like the controversial server on which Hillary Clinton relied as secretary of state.

The bill bars money for the State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development from being used "to support the use or establishment of email accounts or email servers created outside the .gov domain or not fitted for automated records management," The Hill reports.

The legislation also requires the State Department and USAID to update their policies for record-keeping and tries to ensure all workers hand over relevant files when they leave office. 

The Hill notes the provisions appears to be a direct response to GOP criticism of Clinton's off-the-government-grid use of a private email server while serving as head of the State Department; there were no such restrictions when she was in office.

Republicans have criticized Clinton's email practice as preventing some government records from ever being made public.
