I of the State Constitution. As used in this section, the term “employee with fiduciary responsibility” means an employee of a public guardian who has the ability to direct any transactions of a ward’s funds, assets, or property; who under the supervision of the guardian, manages the care of the ward; or who makes any health care decision, as defined in s. 765.101, on behalf of the ward. This exemption applies to information held by an agency before, on, or after July 1, 2018.

This section is subject to the Open Government Sunset Review Act in accordance with s. 119.15 and shall stand repealed on October 2, 2023, unless reviewed and saved from repeal through reenactment by the Legislature.
