       By the Committee on Governmental Oversight and Accountability;

    1                        A bill to be entitled                      
    2         An act relating to public records; creating s.
    3         341.3026, F.S.; providing an exemption from the
    4         public-records law for personal identifying
    5         information held by a public transit provider for the
    6         purpose of facilitating the purchase of prepaid fare
    7         cards; providing for future repeal and legislative
    8         review of the exemption under the Open Government
    9         Sunset Review Act; providing a statement of public
   10         necessity; providing an effective date.
   12  Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
   14         Section 1. Section 341.3026, Florida Statutes, is created
   15  to read:
   16         341.3026 Public-records exemption.—
   17         (1) Personal identifying information held by a public
   18  transit provider, as defined in s. 341.031, for the purpose of
   19  prepaying transit fares or acquiring a prepaid transit fare card
   20  or similar device, is exempt from s. 119.07(1) and s. 24(a),
   21  Art. I of the State Constitution.
   22         (2) This section is subject to the Open Government Sunset
   23  Review Act in accordance with s. 119.15, and shall stand
   24  repealed on October 2, 2015, unless reviewed and saved from
   25  repeal through reenactment by the Legislature.
   26         Section 2. The Legislature finds that it is a public
   27  necessity to exempt from public-records requirements personal
   28  identifying information held by a public transit provider for
   29  the purpose of facilitating the prepayment of transit fares. The
   30  exemption puts individuals who prepay transit fares using a
   31  prepaid transit fare card on an equal footing with those who pay
   32  cash. Allowing individuals to use a prepaid transit fare card is
   33  a more efficient and effective system for collecting transit
   34  fares, and not only saves individuals time in accessing the
   35  transit system in comparison with individuals who pay cash, but
   36  also costs significantly less to administer. Finally, the
   37  effective and efficient administration of the prepayment option
   38  for public transit programs would be hindered without the
   39  exemption as individuals would be less inclined to use this
   40  payment method if their personal information were made available
   41  to the public.
   42         Section 3. This act shall take effect July 1, 2010.
