Summary: Under current law, individuals who adopt an animal from a government entity are subject to having their contact and personal identification information disclosed to the public under current state public information law. HB 2471 would require that this information remain confidential and only for the purposes of public health risk be disclosed to a government entity or an animal control person contracted with the government entity.
Analysis: HB 2471 would protect people's information from disclosure to individuals who may seek to pester or harass the animal owners. Therefore, in order to protect private property, we support HB 2471.
