BATON ROUGE - Governor Bobby Jindal signed a bill into law today that stiffens penalties for educational institutions found guilty of collecting or sharing certain types of personal student information.

Gov. Jindal said children and parents shouldn't have to fear the involuntary exposure of private information when they enroll in school, and the new law is a step toward preventing future abuse.

Some types of information protected by the law include religious practice, biometric data, income, social security numbers and political affiliation.
