House Bill 711 — Public utilities, social sec number (+1)

House Bill 711 — Public utilities, social sec number (+1)

Parrish Miller
March 14, 2024

Bill Description: House Bill 711 would prohibit public utilities from requiring customers to disclose their Social Security numbers. 

Rating: +1

Does it violate the spirit or the letter of either the U.S. Constitution or the Idaho Constitution? Examples include restrictions on speech, public assembly, the press, privacy, private property, or firearms. Conversely, does it restore or uphold the protections guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution or the Idaho Constitution?

House Bill 711 would create Section 61-301A, Idaho Code, to say, "No public utility shall require an applicant for any product or commodity furnished by the public utility or service rendered by the public utility to disclose the applicant's social security number prior to obtaining such product, commodity, or service."

This prohibition would help protect consumer privacy, and it could reduce the opportunity for identity theft.
