House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session

To: All House members
Subject: Protecting a Consumer Information and Privacy
We are living in a world where our personal information is collected by businesses through our interactions and transactions. The problem is we never know what personal information is being collected and what information may be sold to a third party. Everyone deserves the right to know what personal information is being collected and sold and has a right to keep this information private.

My legislation would require all businesses to provide notice to consumers on what personal information is being collected and if it will be sold. Businesses would also be required to allow consumers to opt out of having their information sold to third parties or even have the information deleted entirely.

I ask that you support this legislation and join me in protecting Pennsylvania consumers by ensuring everyone can maintain their right to privacy

Introduced as HB1049
