Bills exempt public employee addresses GPS data from records requests

HB 1317 and SB 5207 would exempt from release GPS data that indicates a public employee’s residential address. As originally drafted, AWC was concerned about the broad nature of the exemption given the significant time and cost that comes with redacting GPS data. AWC worked with the Department of Enterprise Services, which requested the bill, to find a way to narrow the bill to address our concerns. AWC would like to thank City of Seattle staff for their help with reviewing and revising the bill.
