AS 47.05.020. Regulations Concerning Records; Disclosure of Information.
- (a) The power of the department to adopt regulations includes the power to adopt and enforce reasonable regulations
governing the custody, use, and preservation of the records, papers, files, and communications of the department. The
regulations must provide that financial information concerning an eligibility determination of a person applying for or
receiving cash assistance, a diversion payment, or self-sufficiency services under the Alaska temporary assistance
program shall be disclosed to a legislator on request of the legislator in connection with official purposes within the
scope of the legislator's legislative functions and related to the administration of the program consistent with
federal law. When, under the law, names and addresses of recipients of public assistance are furnished to or held by
another agency or department of government, the agency or department of government shall adopt regulations necessary to
prevent the publication of the lists or their use for purposes not directly connected with the administration of public
assistance and legislative functions. A legislator to whom information relating to the Alaska temporary assistance
program is disclosed under this section may not further disclose the information except to another legislator and then
only in connection with official purposes within each legislator's legislative functions and related to the
administration of the program consistent with federal law.
- (b) In addition to any access to public assistance records authorized under (a) of this section, the department shall
provide a copy of a public assistance record prepared or maintained by or on behalf of the department to the child
support services agency created in AS 25.27.010, or
the child support enforcement agency of another state, upon the request of the respective agency. If the record is in
an electronic data base, the department shall provide the requesting agency with either access to the data base, or a
copy of the information in the data base and a statement certifying its contents. The agency receiving the information
under this subsection may use the information only for child support purposes authorized under law.
