85(R) - 2017
Texas Workforce Commission
Relating to certain identifying information regarding career school or college students.
From the LBB: No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
This bill would amend the definition of “student information” as identifying information regarding a student that is in the possession of the Texas Workforce Commission and any school, college, or educational institution or business entity from which the commission receives information.
Vote Recommendation Notes
This bill would further our individual liberty principles by expanding the definition of student information in order to make sure that certain identifying information is subject to confidentiality requirements, which protects the privacy of students and protects their information from improper disclosure. For this reason, we support this bill.
