WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today released the following statement regarding House passage of H.R. 3811:
“While House Republicans continue to fight to fully repeal ObamaCare, it is imperative that we take steps to protect Americans’ personal information and demand much-needed transparency from the Administration. That is why I proudly supported this common-sense bill to ensure that the American people receive the information from the Administration that they deserve. The Health Exchange Security and Transparency Act of 2014 requires the HHS Secretary to alert any individual within two business days if their personal information included in the exchanges has been compromised.
“This responsible bill provides anyone affected by a security breach timely notice so they can take steps to protect themselves from potential identity theft. I urge the Senate to join our efforts to protect the American people and vote on the Health Exchange Security and Transparency Act of 2014 immediately.”
