SB 7022 — Open Government Sunset Review/Proprietary Confidential Business Information
by Regulated Industries Committee
This summary is provided for information only and does not represent the opinion of any Senator, Senate Officer, or Senate Office.
Prepared by: Regulated Industries Committee (RI)
The bill revises and saves from repeal the public records exemption for proprietary confidential business information submitted by voice communications services providers to the E911 Board, the Division of Telecommunications within the Department of Management Services, or the Department of Revenue as an agent of the E911 Board. The bill narrows the exemption by deleting trade secrets, including trade secrets as defined in s. 812.081, F.S., relating to trade secrets, theft, embezzlement, unlawful copying, definitions, and penalty, from the definition of “proprietary confidential business information.” The bill removes the scheduled repeal date of October 2, 2021, to continue the confidential and exempt status of the information.
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect July 1, 2021.
Vote: Senate 39-0; House 114-2
