Title 50, Chapter 18, Section 135 (50-18-135)

(a) As used in this article, the term:

(1) "Multiracial" means having parents of different races.

(2) "State agency" means any state department, board, bureau, commission, authority, council, committee, and any other state agency or instrumentality.

(b) All written forms, applications, questionnaires, and other written documents or material produced by or for or used by any state agency which request information on the racial or ethnic identification of a respondent and which contain an enumeration of racial and ethnic classifications from which such respondent must select one shall include among their choices the classification "multiracial."

(c) No such written document or computer software described in subsection (b) of this Code section shall bear the designation "other" as a racial or ethnic classification after July 1, 1994, unless such document was printed and in stock before July 1, 1994.

(d) In any instance in which it is required that racial data collected by a state agency be reported to a federal agency, the computation of all persons designated on state forms or other documents as multiracial shall be reported by such state agency as multiracial. However, if any such federal agency deems the multiracial designation unacceptable, then the reporting state agency shall, upon resubmission of such data, redesignate the multiracial population by allocating a percentage of the number of persons comprising such population to each federally acceptable racial or ethnic classification at the same rate as each such classification comprises the general population of the collected group.
