Personal identifying information; State Corporation Commission filings.  Declares that a person preparing or submitting a document or information that is filed with the clerk of the State Corporation Commission is responsible for ensuring that the document or information does not contain any personal identifiable information, which includes a social security number or other number on a drivers license, information on credit cards or other electronic billing and payment systems, an individual's date of birth or parent's maiden name, and financial account numbers. The provision does not apply if the information is publicly available or is required or authorized by law to be included in the filed information. The measure also authorizes the clerk of the Commission to remove, delete, or obliterate such information from a document, and to refuse to accept for filing any document that includes personal identifiable information. The State Corporation Commission, its members, the clerk of the Commission, and any member of his staff are declared to be immune from liability for any acts or omissions in implementing these provisions.
