    Sec. 5. Nothing in this chapter authorizes a state agency to disclose identifying information or any other information if the information is confidential under state or federal statute.
    Sec. 6. If a state agency publishes a person's identifying information on the Internet for the purpose of notifying any person that the person identified by the information is delinquent in paying a listed tax (as defined in IC 6-8.1-1-1) collected by the state or an obligation enforced by a state agency, the state agency must comply with this chapter.
    Sec. 7. Before a state agency may publish identifying information on the Internet as set forth in this chapter, the state agency shall adopt rules under IC 4-22-2 that do or include the following:
        (1) Establish standards for the state agency's determination to publish a person's identifying information on the Internet. The state agency shall establish standards for not publishing a person's identifying information on the Internet if the person is disputing the delinquency with the state agency and no final resolution of the dispute has been reached.
        (2) Establish standards for removing a person from the list not later than ten (10) days after the reason for being placed on the list has been finally resolved or is no longer relevant.
        (3) Establish a procedure for notifying the person that the person will be placed on the list if the person does not pay the delinquent listed tax or obligation or dispute the state agency's assertion that the person owes the delinquent listed tax or obligation.
        (4) Any provision to otherwise implement this chapter.
