            610.029. 1. A public governmental body keeping its records in an electronic format is strongly encouraged to provide access to its public records to members of the public in an electronic format. A public governmental body is strongly encouraged to make information available in usable electronic formats to the greatest extent feasible. A public governmental body [may] shall not enter into a contract for the creation or maintenance of a public records database if that contract impairs the ability of the public to inspect or copy the public records of that agency, including public records that are online or stored in an electronic record-keeping system used by the agency. Such contract [may] shall not allow any impediment that as a practical matter makes it more difficult for the public to inspect or copy the records than to inspect or copy the public governmental body's records. For purposes of this section, a usable electronic format shall allow, at a minimum, viewing and printing of records. However, if the public governmental body keeps a record on a system capable of allowing the copying of electronic documents into other electronic documents, the public governmental body shall provide data to the public in such electronic format, if requested. The activities authorized pursuant to this section [may] shall not take priority over the primary responsibilities of a public governmental body. For purposes of this section the term "electronic services" means online access or access via other electronic means to an electronic file or database. This subsection shall not apply to contracts initially entered into before August 28, 2004.

            2. Public governmental bodies shall include in a contract for electronic services provisions that:

            (1) Protect the security and integrity of the information system of the public governmental body and of information systems that are shared by public governmental bodies; and

            (2) Limit the liability of the public governmental body providing the services.

A criminal justice agency receiving a request for criminal history information under its control may require positive identification, to include fingerprints of the subject of the record search, prior to releasing closed record information. Dissemination of closed and open records from the Missouri criminal records repository shall be in accordance with section 43.509. All records which are closed records shall be removed from the records of the courts, administrative agencies, and law enforcement agencies which are available to the public and shall be kept in separate records which are to be held confidential and, where possible, pages of the public record shall be retyped or rewritten omitting those portions of the record which deal with the defendant's case. If retyping or rewriting is not feasible because of the permanent nature of the record books, such record entries shall be blacked out and recopied in a confidential book.

            620.1100. 1. The "Youth Opportunities and Violence Prevention Program" is hereby established in the division of community and economic development of the department of economic development to broaden and strengthen opportunities for positive development and participation in community life for youth, and to discourage such persons from engaging in criminal and violent behavior. For the purposes of section 135.460, this section and section 620.1103, the term "advisory committee" shall mean an advisory committee to the division of community and economic development established pursuant to this section composed of ten members of the public.

Such criteria and evaluation methods shall measure program effectiveness and outcomes, and shall give priority to local, neighborhood, community-based programs. The department shall monitor and evaluate all programs funded pursuant to section 135.460, this section and section 620.1103. Such programs shall provide a priority for applications from areas of the state which have statistically higher incidence of crime, violence and poverty and such programs shall be funded before the programs which have applied from areas which do not exhibit crime, violence, and poverty to the same degree. The committee shall focus and support specific programs designed to generate self-esteem and a positive self-reliance in youth and which abate youth violence.

            4. The department shall develop and operate a database which lists all participating and related programs. The database shall include indexes and cross references and shall be accessible by the public by computer-modem connection.
