Barton Wants To Help with Privacy Bill
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.June 10, 2010
A ranking member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee says privacy legislation drafted by his colleagues does not go far enough, reports Tech Daily Dose. Congressman Joe Barton (R-TX) told Energy and Commerce Chairman Henry Waxman (D-CA) that he can work with democrats on crafting legislation that would help build consensus on the issues. Barton said that Reps. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) and Rick Boucher (D-VA) "put together a good draft to get people's attention," but the bill released last month doesn't go far enough, the report states.
