Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:
II. Information submitted in the application process shall be private, confidential, and not available for review. However, the license itself, the findings of investigatory and monitoring visits, and final decisions relative to licensure of the child day care agency shall be considered public information, posted on the department's website, and available for review by members of the public. The findings of investigatory and monitoring visits and final decisions relative to licensure shall be posted on the department's website not less than 21 days from the date of the finding or decision, and shall be available on the website for a period of 3 years.
III. At least 15 business days before posting the results or findings of an investigatory visit, monitoring visit, or a final decision relative to licensure on the department's website, the department shall notify the child day care agency of its findings or decision and the date on which the information shall be posted on the department's website. The department may provide such notice by email or, if the child day care agency has not provided an email address, by United States mail. If the child day care agency submits a response prior to the date of posting, the child day care agency's response shall also be posted on the department's website.
