AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The Texas House has given preliminary
approval to hiding identifying information about school employees
from public records. Teachers, principals and other school
employees say keeping date like schoolteachers' home addresses and
cell phone numbers private will protect them from identity theft.
But journalists and open records advocates object to what they say
is a deal breaker - removing the days and months of birth dates
from open records.
