House Works to Keep Your Personal Information Secure

WASHINGTON – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement today after the House passed the Health Exchange Security and Transparency Act of 2014, which will help safeguard personal information submitted to Obamacare exchanges:

“Today the House acted to promote security and protect people. Since the launch of the Obamacare website, there’s been tremendous concern over the safety of patients’ personal and medical information – and this legislation addresses just that. It ensures that security breaches are properly addressed and that Americans are notified immediately if their information has been compromised. In the last few months, it has become increasingly evident that Obamacare is more than just a bad website – it’s a bad law. In addition to rising premiums, cancelled policies, and reduced access, Americans are now concerned about the security of their most personal information. I applaud Chairman Joe Pitts for his outstanding work to advance this legislation and protect Americans all across this country.”
