More Clinton White House records to be released

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The National Archives says it plans to release more documents from former President Bill Clinton's administration on Friday, part of a months-long disbursement of White House records.

About 20,000 pages of records from Clinton's two terms have been released since February. The papers are being closely monitored by media organizations and historians as former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton considers a second presidential campaign.

About 1,000 pages of memos, transcripts and speech drafts will be disseminated Friday by the National Archives through the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Ark.

Previously released papers have shed light on the Clinton administration's unsuccessful attempt to overhaul the health care system, Republicans' sweeping victories in the 1994 mid-term elections and Bill Clinton's handling of foreign policy.
