Reactions to the Boucher Bill, Part One

By InfoLawGroup LLP on June 07, 2010

As previously reported, in early May Reps. Rick Boucher (D-Va.) and Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) introduced a discussion draft of proposed federal privacy and data security legislation. Reps. Boucher and Stearns sought comments on the discussion draft, setting a deadline of last Friday, June 4, 2010. Numerous organizations have submitted comments. This multi-part post will describe and summarize, at a high level, some (but not all) of the issues identified by the commenters.
