Rush introduces breach notification bill in House

Yesterday in Congress, Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) introduced H.R. 2221, co-sponsored by Reps. Stearns (R-FL), Barton (R-TX), Schakowsky (D-IL), and Radanovich (R-CA).

The text of the bill is not yet available online, but it was introduced as “A bill to protect consumers by requiring reasonable security policies and procedures to protect computerized data containing personal information, and to provide for nationwide notice in the event of a security breach.” The bill was referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce, and I’ve entered it on the Congress page of this site for those who wish to track its progress.
