Introduced by Sen. Rick Jones (R) on March 9, 2017
To establish a process and liability exemption for a police agency disclosing information to another agency about a formerly-employed officer who may have been fired.

Applicants for a police job would have to give the prospective employer a waiver allowing it to get the records explaining the separation, and the former employer would be immune from liability for revealing this.
