Legislators renew privacy push

Two congressmen have reintroduced legislation to create a commission to study privacy issues. The proposed 17-member commission, called the Privacy Protection Commission, was reintroduced by Reps. Asa Hutchinson, R-Ark., and Jim Moran, D-Va., after previous legislation failed to receive a two-thirds majority vote during the last session of Congress. The bipartisan group would examine commercial and governmental privacy policies as they relate to such issues as medical records, financial statements and online profiling practices.
