   11  Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
   13         Section 1. Paragraph (b) of subsection (4) of section
   14  119.071, Florida Statutes, is amended to read:
   15         119.071 General exemptions from inspection or copying of
   16  public records.—
   18         (b)1. Medical information pertaining to a prospective,
   19  current, or former officer or employee of an agency which, if
   20  disclosed, would identify that officer or employee is exempt
   21  from s. 119.07(1) and s. 24(a), Art. I of the State
   22  Constitution. However, such information may be disclosed if the
   23  person to whom the information pertains or the person’s legal
   24  representative provides written permission or pursuant to court
   25  order.
   26         2.a. Personal identifying information of a dependent child

   29  exempt from s. 119.07(1) and s. 24(a), Art. I of the State
   30  Constitution. For purposes of this exemption, “dependent child”
   31  has the same meaning as in s. 409.2554.
   32         b. This exemption is remedial in nature and applies to such
   33  personal identifying information held by an agency before, on,
   34  or after the effective date of this exemption.
   35         c. This subparagraph is subject to the Open Government
   36  Sunset Review Act in accordance with s. 119.15 and shall stand
   37  repealed on October 2, 2014, unless reviewed and saved from
   38  repeal through reenactment by the Legislature.
   39         Section 2. This act shall take effect July 1, 2014.
