SB 6 Limits Public Records Disclosure
SB 8, as introduced, Yee. Public records: auxiliary organizations.
The California Public Records Act requires state and local
agencies to make their records available for public inspection and to
make copies available upon request and payment of a fee unless those
records are exempt from disclosure.
This bill would require specified entities to comply with the act,
but would not require these entities to disclose information
obtained in the process of soliciting potential donors that has
actual or potential independent economic value because it is not
generally known to the public or because the individuals can obtain
economic value from its disclosure or use. The bill would exempt from
disclosure the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of persons
who volunteer services or donate to specified entities if those
persons request anonymity. However, the bill would provide that this
exemption does not apply if a volunteer or donor meets specified
Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no.
State-mandated local program: no.
