Section 1 amends a provision on welfare data in the Data Practices Act so that specified data on individuals may be disclosed between DHS and the Council to: (1) coordinate Metro Mobility services and services funded by DHS; and (2) provide for reimbursement of Metro Mobility.

Section 2 amends a provision on transportation data in the Data Practices Act so that private transportation service data may be disclosed between DHS and the Council for purpose of administering and coordinating human services programs and transportation services for disabled and elderly individuals.
