Thursday, February 14, 2008 - University donor privacy questioned - University donor privacy questioned: "The House General Laws Committee passed a bill last Tuesday that would permit donors to public colleges and universities to remain anonymous if they wish to do so.

House Bill 407, sponsored by Sen. Edward Houck (R-Spotsylvania) and Delegate Glenn Oder (R-Newport News), passed the committee on an 18-3 vote.

The measure, which came at the request of the University of Virginia, would grant Virginia's colleges and universities an exemption under the Freedom of Information Act to withhold a large amount of personal information about donors."
