HB 2249 - DIGEST

Prohibits the institutions of higher education and other postsecondary institutions of education in this state, whether public or private, from sharing, furnishing, selling, or transferring the social security number of a student outside of the institution or school district where the student attends or attended unless positively required by law or court order, except where the student or the parent or guardian of a minor student gives written consent.

Creates a legislative task force for the 2017-2019 biennium to: (1) Study how best to prevent the proliferation of social security numbers of the state's citizens, particularly its youth, under any circumstance not expressly authorized by the affected individual, or, if a minor, that individual's parent or guardian; and

(2) Consider whether any broader category of sensitive personal information requires similar protection through state law.
