An Act Concerning Private Personal Information of Public Employees and Licensed Individuals
Sec. 1. 1 MRSA §434, sub-§4 is enacted to read:
This bill is based on a recommendation of the Right To Know Advisory Committee concerning the protection of private personal information that may be considered public records. The bill directs the joint standing committee of the Legislature having jurisdiction over judiciary matters to balance the public’s right to know about public employees and professional and occupational licensees and license applicants with the privacy and safety interests of the individuals involved when a proposed public records exception concerns the private personal information of public employees and professional or occupational licensees or license applicants.
