Hunting For Anonymity In Florida

posted on February 12, 2016

People currently possessing a hunting, fishing and boating license in the Sunshine State are fair game as far as their personal information is concerned, as any interested party who files an open records request can obtain their name, address, phone number, date of birth and more.  

Republican state Sen. Alan Hays is looking to change that. He has sponsored a measure that would create a public records exemption to shield the personal information of those with licenses. Hays said the intent of the proposal is to protect gun owners. “You know good and well most of those homes, where the owner or the occupant has a hunting license, are going to have a weapon," he said.

SB 1364 was backed by the Senate Governmental Oversight and Accountability Committee on Tuesday. If approved, it would become law on July 1.
