Boucher Looks Into His Crystal Ball On Privacy Legislation
By Juliana Gruenwald, National Journal, October 19, 2011
Former Rep. Rick Boucher, D-Va., a key player on tech and telecom issues for more than two decades, made some bold and not-so-bold predictions on Wednesday about the fate of privacy and data security legislation this Congress. The not-so-bold prediction is that lawmakers will not pass broad comprehensive privacy legislation this Congress, a view echoed by both privacy advocates and industry critics of such proposals. … But Boucher also predicted that the House, at the very least, will likely pass a children’s privacy bill offered by Reps. Joe Barton, R-Texas, and Ed Markey, D-Mass., and also a measure, approved last week by the House Judiciary Committee, that would update a 1988 law protecting the privacy of consumer video rental records.
