Eric CantorRep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) will lead efforts to write legislation for implementing new security measures into the Healthcare.gov website, Fedscoop reported Friday.

Scott Maucione writes Cantor plans to submit to the House floor this week a bill that will require the government to inform citizens in cases of a security breach.

The bill will also require the website to submit to a Government Accountability Office review and earn endorsement from the chief information officer of the issuing agency, the report added.
