Current laws protecting personal privacy would still apply to all information released under an open data policy. Beyond this protected information, what specific data sets do you feel should be restricted for public access?
We are still waiting for a response from Tom Corbett.
None. And whenever personnel privacy is involed, graphic tabulation of such assertions, by agency, should be publicly available so that the public knows which officers withhold information on this basis and how often.
Addresses of government employees are restricted to the public although unions have full access to them. A level playing field is needed.
Specific example: Any location data about citizens, such as license-plate readers.
As noted in my response to Question 4, I believe it is appropriate to restrict access to data that could pose risks to public safety or homeland security. Those determinations will have to be made on a case-by-case basis.
A policy will be developed under my administration with my oversight and approval, as has been done in other states and cities that will follow the laws as written to continue to protect personal privacy and security, but allows overwhelming access to public data.
As governor, I will make a thorough review of the Right to Know Law and Sunshine Act to see how we can improve them. I will start by strongly considering a fuller inclusion of state-related universities under the Right to Know Law.
I will work with the Office of General Counsel, the Office of Data Analysis and Program Management, and department and agency leaders to identify and develop a plan for the release off all datasets that should not be restricted due to privacy, confidentiality, or security concerns.
