    2         An act relating to a review under the Open Government
    3         Sunset Review Act; amending s. 627.0628, F.S.;
    4         clarifying the public-records exemption for a trade

    7         Florida Commission on Hurricane Loss Projection
    8         Methodology, the Office of Insurance Regulation, or an
    9         appointed consumer advocate to specify that the
   10         exemption applies to trade secrets as defined in the
   11         Uniform Trade Secrets Act; requiring a recording of a
   12         closed meeting of the commission or of a rate
   13         proceeding on an insurer’s rate filing at which
   14         confidential and exempt trade secrets are discussed;
   15         creating a public-records exemption for the recording
   16         of the closed meeting; providing for future
   17         legislative review and repeal of the exemption;
   18         providing a statement of public necessity; providing
   19         an effective date.
   20  
   21  Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
   22  
   23         Section 1. Paragraph (f) of subsection (3) of section
   24  627.0628, Florida Statutes, is amended to read:
   25         627.0628 Florida Commission on Hurricane Loss Projection
   26  Methodology; public records exemption; public meetings
   27  exemption.—
   28         (3) ADOPTION AND EFFECT OF STANDARDS AND GUIDELINES.—
   29         (f)1. A trade secret, as defined in s. 688.002 812.081,
   30  that is used in designing and constructing a hurricane loss
   31  model and that is provided pursuant to this section, by a
   32  private company, to the commission, office, or consumer advocate
   33  appointed pursuant to s. 627.0613, is confidential and exempt
   34  from s. 119.07(1) and s. 24(a), Art. I of the State
   35  Constitution.
   36         2.a. That portion of a meeting of the commission or of a
   37  rate proceeding on an insurer’s rate filing at which a trade
   38  secret made confidential and exempt by this paragraph is
   39  discussed is exempt from s. 286.011 and s. 24(b), Art. I of the
   40  State Constitution. The closed meeting must be recorded and no
   41  portion of the closed meeting may be off the record.
   42         b. The recording of a closed portion of a meeting is exempt
   43  from s. 119.07(1) and s. 24(a), Art. I of the State
   44  Constitution.
   45         c.3. This subparagraph paragraph is subject to the Open
   46  Government Sunset Review Act in accordance with s. 119.15, and
   47  shall stand repealed on October 2, 2015 2010, unless reviewed
   48  and saved from repeal through reenactment by the Legislature.
   49         Section 2. The Legislature finds that it is a public
   50  necessity to make exempt from public-records requirements the
   51  recording generated during those portions of a meeting of the
   52  Florida Commission on Hurricane Loss Projection Methodology or
   53  of a rate proceeding on an insurer’s rate filing at which
   54  confidential and exempt trade secrets are discussed. Release of
   55  such recordings would compromise the discussions that took place
   56  during the closed meeting and would negate the public-meetings
   57  exemption. Further, current law already provides a public
   58  records exemption for trade secrets. As such, release of the
   59  recording generated during those closed portions of meetings
   60  would compromise the current protections already afforded trade
   61  secrets.
   62         Section 3. This act shall take effect October 1, 2010.
