Schoen, a police officer, said the language would have invited unneeded criticism of small-town police officers and their families, as well as possibly motivate governments to issue fewer disciplinary actions.

“Why would … you want to protect the bad actors?” Holberg asked her colleagues, urging them to oppose the amendment. “This is not people just accused. These are individuals that violate these standards, and there was disciplinary action. Why would we make that not readily available to the public?”

Holberg also removed a provision from the bill that would allow people to obtain an audit trail of the employees who access their private data. A companion bill is pending in the Senate.
