CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 2666


Introduced by Assembly Member Medina

February 15, 2018


An act to amend Section 1653.5 of, and to add Section 1808.26 to, the Vehicle Code, relating to the Department of Motor Vehicles.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2666, as amended, Medina. Department of Motor Vehicles: interagency agreement: career technical education program students.
Existing law authorizes the governing board of a community college district to enter into a College and Career Access Pathways partnership with the governing board of a school district with the goal of developing seamless pathways from high school to community college for career technical education or preparation for transfer, improving high school graduation rates, or helping high school pupils achieve college and career readiness.
Existing federal and state law provides for the confidentiality of specified personal information, including an individual’s name, address, and telephone number, provided to the Department of Motor Vehicles and prohibits the disclosure of that information, except as specified. Existing law specifies that information regarding an applicant’s social security account number, obtained by the department for purposes of obtaining a driver’s license or identification card card, is not a public record and prohibits disclosure by the department except for specified purposes, including responding to information requests from the Franchise Tax Board for the purpose of tax administration.
This bill would require the Department of Motor Vehicles to enter into an interagency agreement with the Employment Development Department, the California Community Colleges, and the State Department of Education to assist those entities in identifying students who participate in career technical education programs, so that those entities may be able to measure the employment outcomes of those students and recommend how those programs may be improved. The bill would prohibit the information a social security number made available by the department pursuant to that provision agreement from constituting a public record or being used for any other purpose. The bill would add the purposes of the interagency agreement established pursuant to these provisions to the list of purposes for which the department may disclose social security numbers.
Existing constitutional provisions require that a statute that limits the right of access to the meetings of public bodies or the writings of public officials and agencies be adopted with findings demonstrating the interest protected by the limitation and the need for protecting that interest.
This bill would make legislative findings to that effect.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO
