The Privacy Study Commission was established by the Open Public Records Act to study privacy issues raised by the collection, processing, use and dissemination of information by public agencies, in light of the recognized need for openness in government. The Commission will recommend specific measures, including legislation, to deal with these issues and safeguard the privacy rights of individuals.

The Commission was given a special directive by Governor McGreevey in his Executive Order 26 to “study the issue of whether and to what extent the home address and home telephone number of citizens should be made publicly available by public agencies…” The draft report on this issue is posted on the Commission’s website: www.nj.gov/privacy. The Commission now seeks public comment on this special draft report. (Please note that this draft report only reflects the findings and recommendation on the narrow issue of home addresses and telephone numbers in government records.)
