Current Bill Summary

HCS/SCS/SB 61 - This act prohibits any person or entity from publicly displaying a person's Social Security number. This act also prohibits requiring a person to send their Social Security number over the Internet, unless it is encrypted or otherwise made secure. The provisions of this section applies on or after July 1, 2006. However, those entities using a person's Social Security number prior to July 1, 2006, may continue to use it if the use was consistent or if they provide an annual disclosure that informs the individual that he or she has the right to stop the use of his or her Social Security number. This provision does not apply to government agencies or to records that are required to be open records pursuant to law.

This act prohibits county recorders from providing recorded military discharge records to anyone except authorized parties including the person who is the subject of the records; the subject's relatives, attorney, or guardian; any person with written authorization from any of these parties; or a government agency. County recorders may refuse to accept any military discharge document appearing to be altered, that does not contain an original signature, or any document that is not a certified copy of a record from a government agency. County recorders may not charge a fee for accepting or providing military discharge records or for providing the notarized request form needed to obtain the records. This act also prohibits the use or reproduction of military discharge records for any commercial purpose.
