House Majority Leader Eric Cantor to Draft New Security Bill

Eric CantorRep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) will lead efforts to write legislation for implementing new security measures into the 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.

Maucione writes the new bill borrowed text from other security laws drafted by Reps. Diane Black (R-Tenn.), Kerry Bentivolio (R-Mich.) and Gus Bilirakis (R-Fla.).

“IT experts have repeatedly raised red flags about the security of the information people are putting into the exchanges,” Black said, according to the report.
