Bill Analysis

Summary: H.B. 2961 seeks to protect the social security number of a school district employee or former employee from public disclosure. HB 2961 would make the social security numbers of school district employees confidential by prohibiting the school district from releasing that information. HB 2961 would require the board of trustees of an independent school district to adopt a policy prohibiting the use of social security numbers of their employees as an employee identifier other than for tax purpose.

Analysis: HB 2961 enhances individual liberty by protecting school district employees from having their Social Security number made public by their employer. We support HB 2961.
