"The first bill of the Legislature to be passed and signed into law by the Governor was HB 2061. HB 2061 addresses the common practice of County Clerks using Social Security numbers (SSN) for purposes of identification in documents publicly available on the Internet.
The bill went into effect on March 28, 2007, and provides that a county or district clerk is not liable for the disclosure of a SSN contained in a document filed with the county or district clerk. It requires, upon written request of an individual, the redaction, from documents specified by the individual, of all but the last four numbers of a SSN unless another law requires the full SSN to be maintained on the document.
