NAID Visits Legislators

Bookmark and Share

Ironically, on the very day on which the first national shred law becomes effective, a delegation from the NAID Government Relations Committee will be meeting with the staff of a number of legislators drafting a bill that has the potential to dramatically expand the protections on personal information, including a requirement to destroy it when it is discarded.

From the beginning, NAID called for a more broad definition of what FACTA covered. However, regulators limited the scope of FACTA to information contained on credit reports because of the original language of the law passed by Congress. It appears as though the proposed law will address that issue, and define the personal information much more broadly.
