    5         3. An agency that is the custodian of the information
    6  specified in subparagraph 2. and that is not the employer of the
    7  officer, employee, justice, judge, or other person specified in
    8  subparagraph 2. shall maintain the exempt status of that
    9  information only if the officer, employee, justice, judge, other
   10  person, or employing agency of the designated employee submits a
   11  written request for maintenance of the exemption to the
   12  custodial agency.
   13         4. An officer, an employee, a justice, a judge, or other
   14  person specified in subparagraph 2. may submit a written request
   15  for the release of his or her exempt information to the
   16  custodial agency. The written request must be notarized and must
   17  specify the information to be released and the party that is
   18  authorized to receive the information. Upon receipt of the
   19  written request, the custodial agency shall release the
   20  specified information to the party authorized to receive such
   21  information.
   22         5. The exemptions in this paragraph apply to information
   23  held by an agency before, on, or after the effective date of the
   24  exemption.
   25         6. This paragraph is subject to the Open Government Sunset
   26  Review Act in accordance with s. 119.15 and shall stand repealed
   27  on October 2, 2024, unless reviewed and saved from repeal
   28  through reenactment by the Legislature.
   29         Section 2. (1)(a)The Legislature finds that it is a public
   30  necessity to exempt from public records requirements the home
   31  addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, and photographs of
   32  current or former commissioners of the Florida Commission on
   33  Offender Review and commission personnel whose duties include
   34  making a final decision on, holding a hearing for, or
   35  investigating a violation of post-incarceration supervised
   36  release; the names, home addresses, telephone numbers, dates of
   37  birth, photographs, and places of employment of the spouses and
   38  children of such current or former commissioners and commission
   39  personnel; and the names and locations of schools and day care
   40  facilities attended by the children of such current or former
   41  commissioners and commission personnel.
   42         (b) The efforts of commissioners and commission personnel
   43  can have a direct effect on which persons are placed on parole
   44  or released on conditional medical release; on the terms and
   45  conditions of those persons released on parole, conditional
   46  release, conditional medical release, or addiction recovery
   47  supervision; and on the determination of whether a releasee has
   48  violated the terms of his or her parole. The Legislature finds
   49  that the release of such personal identifying information and
   50  location information might place these personnel of the Florida
   51  Commission on Offender Review and their family members in danger
   52  of physical and emotional harm by disgruntled individuals who
   53  react contentiously to actions taken by such personnel. The
   54  Legislature further finds that the harm that may result from the
   55  release of such personal identifying and location information
   56  outweighs any public benefit that may be derived from the
   57  disclosure of such information.
