Cosponsor the Bipartisan Access to Congressionally Mandated Reports Act

Each year federal agencies submit thousands of reports to Congress containing a wealth of information that enables the public to better understand how well federal agencies are (or are not) fulfilling their respective missions, from ensuring the safety of
our drugs and food supply, to protecting the environment, and monitoring the soundness of our financial institutions. Unfortunately, many of these reports simply sit collecting dust in the Committees to which they are delivered, or are posted in numerous places
on dozens of agency websites rarely to be seen.

Consumer Data Breaches Underscore the Need for Streamlined Notification: Cosponsor HR 3806, The Personal Data Notification and Protection Act

The number of cybersecurity incidents continues to rise and companies continue to have consumer data stolen from their networks.  Often, the notification to consumers about such breaches is slow and inconsistently executed across states. The breach of Uber in

Protect our Elections From Hackers – Cosponsor the Safeguarding Election Infrastructure Act of 2017

After the 2000 Presidential Election, Congress passed the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) to update our ageing and confusing voting systems with easy-to-use touch screen voting machines.  While the intention was good, many of those voting machines haven’t been
updated since, and are vulnerable to attack.  We all know now that foreign adversaries pay very close attention to our elections.  At the most recent DEFCON,

hackers and security researchers were able to compromise dozens of voting machines with relative ease – and during an election, these same vulnerabilities would allow an actor to change vote tallies or manipulate voter registration databases, often with
little to no trace.
