I think this is a great idea and should be on a public Registry, so the public can keep an eye out.

the only GOOD thing about this bill, is the NEW Lawsuits that We The Legally Abused citizenry, may Then bring against EACH PERSON who DISSEMINATES PERSONAL information without CONSENT, NOTICE, or Authorization. Especially in matters whereby the "state" is NOT even a LEGAL, nor LAWFUL Party in Interest in the ALLEGED cases of "debt" the state's own employees manufacture against People for their own incomes.
