Identity Theft Protection Act (S. 1408)

In late July, the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation approved legislation that would impose a number of new requirements on institutions of higher education designed to protect against identity theft. The "Identity Theft Protection Act" (S. 1408) received broad bipartisan support in the committee and is expected to move quickly through the full Senate.
