Privacy on the Agenda Regardless of Election Outcomes
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.September 24, 2010
Tech Daily Dose reports that privacy is likely to be on the agenda of the House Energy and Commerce Communications Subcommittee no matter which party controls the house in the next congress. That's because both subcommittee chairman Rick Boucher (D-VA) and subcommittee member Cliff Stearns (R-FL) say they will push forward on comprehensive legislation, including a possible overhaul of the 1996 telecommunications act to improve its functionality and update it to reflect new services offered by telecom companies. Boucher and Stearns drafted privacy legislation in May, which has elicited much input from stake holders.
