This bill directs the President to establish and update, every 90 days, a publicly available database that contains records of:
- the name of each visitor at the White House, residence of the Vice-President, or any other location at which the President or Vice President regularly conducts official business (covered location);
- the name of each individual with whom the visitor met at the covered location; and
