AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 30-4-40, AS AMENDED, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO CERTAIN MATTERS EXEMPT FROM DISCLOSURE UNDER THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT, SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT INFORMATION CONTAINED IN PUBLIC DOCUMENTS OR RECORDS OF A PERSONAL NATURE CONCERNING DISABLED PERSONS MAY NOT BE DISCLOSED FOR PERSON-TO-PERSON COMMERCIAL SOLICITATION OF DISABLED PERSONS.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
"Information of a personal nature" expanded
SECTION 1. Section 30-4-40(a)(2) of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"(2) Information of a personal nature where the public disclosure thereof would constitute unreasonable invasion of personal privacy. Information of a personal nature shall include, but not be limited to, information as to gross receipts contained in applications for business licenses and information relating to public records which include the name, address, and telephone number or other such information of an individual or individuals who are handicapped or disabled when the information is requested for person-to-person commercial solicitation of handicapped persons solely by virtue of their handicap. This provision must not be interpreted to restrict access by the public and press to information contained in public records."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Approved the 24th day of May, 1994.
