February 14, 2003

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Thanks to overwhelming support from homeschoolers, Senate File 99
unanimously passed the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Data
Practices yesterday. The Senators have assured us that no further e-
mail is necessary at this time.

ACTION REQUESTED

Please send a brief note of thanks in writing to the subcommittee
members below:


Chair: Wesley J. Skoglund 124 State Capitol, St. Paul, MN 55155
Don Betzold 111 State Capitol, St. Paul, MN 55155
Ann H. Rest 205 State Capitol, St. Paul, MN 55155
Warren Limmer 121 State Office Building, St. Paul, MN 55155
Julianne E. Ortman G-21 State Office Building, St. Paul, MN 55155

BACKGROUND

A companion bill to House File 168, Senate File 99 would solve
Minnesota's data privacy problem by specifically stating that "data
collected by a public school on a child that must be reported
pursuant to Section 120A.24 is private data." "Private data" should
be contrasted with "directory information" or "public data," which
under Minnesota's Sunshine Law must be released upon request.

Very truly yours,

Scott W. Somerville
HSLDA Staff Attorney
