Legislators Reintroduce Privacy Commission Bill

Share this content:
U.S. Reps. Asa Hutchinson, R-AR, and James Moran, D-VA, reintroduced legislation this month that would create a bipartisan government commission to assess privacy issues and present remedies to Congress.

The bill was designed to create a 17-member commission for a year-and-a-half of service to study privacy as it relates not only to the Internet but also to medical, financial and government records and to explore privacy protection.

After its initial introduction in March 2000, the bill died on the floor of the House of Representatives in October by a vote of 250-146, 14 votes short of the two-thirds majority needed for the bill to be approved without amendment.
