House votes to keep private some state investment records



The House voted today to renew a law that keeps out of the public eye certain State Board of Administration records involving the growing number of private investments.

The vote was 114 to 1. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Destin, cast the lone dissenting vote. There was no discussion of the bill, which the Times' Sydney P. Freedberg wrote about this week.

The SBA manages $156 billion in pension funds and other state money. The records in question include much of the information relating to alternative investments.
