From: Adam Steinbaugh

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Florida Sunshine Law, I hereby request the following records:

1. A copy of any guidance, information, or policies distributed by Pensacola State College's administration, the State of Florida, or any other governmental authority to faculty or staff concerning House Bill 7 or Fla. Stat. § 1000.05(4). This request is limited to records generated on or after January 1, 2022.

This request is part of a survey being conducted of every public university or college in Florida. Please note that this request does not seek a search of faculty or student email accounts or records. These requests should in no way be construed to include a review or search of email accounts, websites, or other forms of data or document retention which are controlled by students, alumni, or faculty members, nor by governmental or advisory bodies controlled by the same, except insofar as any such individuals also serve in an administrative capacity and the records were created or are held by the individual in that capacity. Any search should be limited to documents held by the administration and/or its staff members, including records created or maintained by persons acting in the capacity of administrators or staff members.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days.

Mr. Steinbaugh,

Your request below has been forwarded to me for a response.

Your email below references § 1000.05(4), Florida Statutes in relation to your request. HB 7 created a new subsection (4) and renumbered the old one as subsection (5). For this response I presume that your inquiry is regarding the new § 1000.05(4) created in HB 7.

Upon review, at this time we do not have any documents that contain any guidance, information, or policies distributed by Pensacola State College's administration, the State of Florida, or any other governmental authority to faculty or staff regarding HB 7 or the newly created § 1000.05(4). We are aware of the new statute which takes effect on July 1, 2022, and when our full faculty returns to campus for the Fall semester in August I anticipate that they will be made aware of the text of the new statute at that time.

This concludes our response to your public records request.

Thomas J. Gilliam, Jr.
Vice President of Administrative Services
and General Counsel
