106-H:14  Information Not Subject to Right-to-Know Law.

I.  Any information or records compiled under this chapter shall not be considered a public record for the purposes of RSA 91-A regardless of the use of such information under paragraph [I or] II or III.

II.  Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, the [bureau] division shall [only] make information or records compiled under this chapter available [as follows] only as follows:

[I.] (a)  On a case-by-case basis to a law enforcement agency that requires the information or records for investigative purposes; and

[II.] (b)  To the department of environmental services solely for the purpose of estimating the location of wells subject to RSA 482-B.  Information shared with the department of environmental services under this provision shall be limited to geographic information systems data that will aid in locating such wells.  The department of environmental services shall not release such shared data under RSA 91-A.
