Congressman Luke Messer Votes to Protect Your Personal Information
Today Congressman Luke Messer voted for the Health Exchange Security and Transparency Act of 2014 (H.R. 3811). The bill requires the Department of Health and Human Services to notify individuals, within two business days, of any potential security breach of the federal or state health insurance exchange websites.
“This bill works to protect Americans from the President’s flawed law and insecure website,” said Congressman Luke Messer. “Experts continue to express major concerns about the security of peoples’ personal information on the Federal health care exchange. If we are going to require people to put their personal and medical information on this site, we owe it to them to make sure their information stays secure. The bill will ensure that people who have their personal information stolen or unlawfully accessed because of website security flaws will be able to take appropriate action to quickly prevent further damage.”
H.R. 3811 passed the House with bipartisan support 291 to 122.
