Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Freedom of Information Act. In the Act's existing exemption of certain trade secrets and commercial or financial information obtained by a public body from inspection and copying requirements, states that the exemption specifically includes certain information relating to private equity funds.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes a provision that certain financial information obtained by a public body concerning a private equity fund is exempt from disclosure only if the disclosure of the information may jeopardize the value of the public body's investment or impair the public body's ability to obtain such information in the course of monitoring current investments or evaluating potential investments. Provides that the exemption concerning the financial information does not apply to the identity of a privately held company within the investment portfolio of a private equity fund, unless the disclosure of the identity of a privately held company may cause competitive harm.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 Does not impose a fiscal impact on the DCEO. In regard to units of local government, it is anticipated that the legislation will not incur a cost.
