In testimony today before the Senate Government Affairs Committee, CDT called on Congress and the Executive Branch to work together on closing well-known gaps in the aging Privacy Act. Although the Act provides several privacy benefits, it has not kept pace with technology, CDT said. CDT also ended its call for a commission to study the Act, as hearings and new government reports have already accomplished that work. In its testimony, CDT made several recommendations consistent with those outlined by the Government Accountability Office. CDT urged the Committee to draft a bill incorporating those recommendations and move it quickly to the floor for a vote.
