Title
Supervisor Sweeney and Bill Schultz, Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters recommending the Board authorize the Chair to sign a letter in opposition of Assembly Bill (AB 2299) (Amended Feuer) requiring public safety officials names be redacted from recorded documents.
Body
AB 2299, if enacted, will require the names of public safety officials to be redacted from any property record of principal residence that is disclosed to the public by the county.  In other words, there is no way for purchasers or lenders to know for certain the ownership of the private property.  This bill will undermine the entire system of recording land transactions and would create a system that was fundamentally flawed.
 
Supervisor Sweeney and Bill Schultz recommend the Chair sign the attached letter.
