It is important in a free and civil society to have transparency in government; including transparency about out government officials. Because of the nature of their work, judges may be victims of violence or threats of violence at a higher rate than most people. It makes sense to allow them to keep their personal address private in order to prevent them or their families from being harassed at home. It is our view that this bill would protect the individual liberty of civil judges without impinging on transparency. For this reason we support HB 1010.
The Senate sponsor is Senator Van Taylor.
