Description

This report presents the findings of a student-faculty research team that studied citizen opinions about privacy protection and the implementation of privacy laws and regulations by several state government agencies during the 2001-2002 academic year. It is intended primarily as information and analysis for the Privacy Task Force created by House Bill 1922, authored by State Representative Brian McCall in the 77th Texas Legislature. Financial support for this effort came from funds designated for research on privacy created by the settlement in Dennis v. MetroMedia Corporation, No. 96-04451 (200th Dist. Ct., Travis County, Tex.), and from the LBJ School. The Texas Civil Rights Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to litigation on behalf of civil rights, acted as the administrator for these funds.
