TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) –An open government advocate is raising concerns over a bill that would create a public records exemption for voter email addresses.
But First Amendment Foundation President Barbara Petersen said the language is too loosely worded. She said the way it's written, it would mean that any email address of any voter held by any government agency would be exempt from public record laws.
She added that it doesn't single out email addresses on voter registration cards. She has suggested language that would help Nelson meet his stated goal.
