Florida House OK’s exemption for college president searches
People applying to lead Florida colleges and universities would get a public-records exemption to shield release of their “personal identifying information” under a measure passed by the House.
The House voted 101-16 to approve a bill (HB 997) that would create a records exemption for applicants to become college and university presidents.
Only information about finalists for the positions would be made public. Under a change, that information would become available when a group of finalists is set or 21 days before meetings where candidates are interviewed or final action is taken.
