Legislators to Examine Veteran Suicide Prevention and Requiring Websites to Post Privacy Policies

Tuesday, June 7, 2016/Categories: Legislative Branch/Tags: State Admin & Veterans' Affairs Interim Committee

The State Administration and Veterans’ Affairs Interim Committee is meeting in Helena on June 8 to examine several public policy issues, including:

  • Veteran suicides and prevention efforts in Montana.
  • Campaign finance laws and updates about recent court cases regarding contribution limits.
  • A potential committee that would require that any commercial website collecting personal information on Montana residents post a privacy policy.  The policy must notify website visitors about how their personal information is collected and used and whether the information is shared or sold.
  • A status report about an information request made by a reporter to the Teachers’ Retirement System and the Montana Public Employees’ Retirement Administration. The reporter, James DeHaven of the Helena Independent Record, asked for several years of data about the retirement benefit amounts paid to retirees by name and agency.

Election laws and the committee’s preliminary bill draft to clean up provisions related to the passage of a general revision bill — House Bill 84 (2015) — will not be discussed until the committee’s next meeting on August 23.

The June 8 meeting is open to the public and begins at 9 a.m. in Room 102 of the Capitol.
