A Missouri appellate court held that personal information in state housing assistance files are exempt from the public records act. The information, including the social security numbers of the program beneficiaries, had been sought by a Kansas City real estate broker. The court said the Missouri General Assembly clearly intended to exclude individuals who ” because of need, receive government assistance for shelter.” (9/13/05)
