Georgia House Votes to Make DNR's Information Restricted

Under Georgia's current open records law, the DNR had to release paperwork that residents had filled out for hunting, trapping, fishing, and operating boat licenses. Republican Rep. David Knight brought a bill to the table that would allow this information to be restricted. It is designed to protect the resident's information from commercial firms and solicitors, especially the Social Security Numbers, birth dates, pictures, addresses and phone numbers.

The house voted unanimously on it, 156-0. Now it will move on to the Senate. From AJC.com.
