The House Financial Services Committee reported out data security legislation yesterday by a vote of 46 to 9. This action may lead to discussions with the House Energy & Commerce Committee, which reported out its own data security bill in April. Activity in the House may also cause the Senate to engage more significantly on the issue of data security.

The House Financial Services Committee data security bill is: H.R. 2205, Data Security Act (Neugebauer-Carney).

The House Energy & Commerce data security bill is: H.R. 1770, Data Security and Breach Notification Act (Blackburn-Welch).
