Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the Disclosure of Personal Information Act.  Prohibits  a      
   financial  institution  from  disclosing  or  making  use  of  certain      
   personal  information concerning a consumer collected by the financial      
   institution in a manner other than to effect, administer, or enforce a      
   transaction with the consumer.  Provides that a financial  institution      
   shall make personal information concerning a consumer available to the      
   consumer  upon his or her request and permit the consumer to request a      
   change of information.  Requires a financial institution  to  disclose      
   to  a consumer at the time of establishing a consumer relationship and      
   at least annually thereafter the categories of  information  collected      
   by   the   financial   institution,   its   policies  concerning  that      
   information, and the right of the consumer to examine and dispute  the      
   accuracy  of any such information.  Authorizes the Attorney General to      
   bring civil actions to enforce the Act.                                     
          FISCAL NOTE (Attorney General)                                       
          HB522 would not have a measurable fiscal impact on the Office        
          of the Attorney General.
