Lawmaker Wants Investigation Made Public
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.May 26, 2011
A U.S. lawmaker is urging the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to release findings of its investigation into Google's collection of WiFi data with its Street View cars, The Hill reports. Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA) has sent a letter to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski urging him to release a full report of the investigation's details. Graves is concerned the FCC has not shared the case's facts with congress and says doing so "will allow congress to determine whether legislative action is necessary to prevent such a breach of private information in the future."
