Relating to the availability of personal information of a state wide elected official or member of the legislature.
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
SB 662 would provide that certain personal information related to statewide elected officials or members of the legislature is excepted from public information requirements. Such personal information includes the home address, home telephone number, emergency contact information, or social security number.
Texas Action remains neutral on SB 662 because it does not affect our liberty principles, however this does appear to be sound public policy striking an appropriate balance between transparency and personal safety of public officials.
