SB 2510 — Public Records/Dependent Eligibility Verification Services

by Appropriations Committee

This summary is provided for information only and does not represent the opinion of any Senator, Senate Officer, or Senate Office.

Prepared by: Appropriations Committee (AP)

The bill makes confidential and exempt from public inspection and copying most documents submitted to the Department of Management Services (department) or its vendor providing dependent eligibility verification services. If a document is collected by the department for another purpose and is not exempt in that situation, that same document submitted for dependent eligibility verification purposes will not be exempt from public inspection and copying.

The bill includes a constitutionally-required public necessity statement. The exemption will stand repealed on October 2, 2022, pursuant to the Open Government Sunset Review Act, unless it is reenacted.

The bill has no fiscal impact.

If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect on the same date that SB 2508 takes effect, which is July 1, 2017.

Vote: Senate 38-0; House 110-2
