by Sabrina I. Pacifici on June 24, 2005

CDT reports that today Representative Bennie Thompson (D-MS) introduced HR. 3041, the “Privacy Officer With Enhanced Rights Act of 2005″ (the POWER Act). “The bill would amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to clarify investigative authorities and provide independence to the Privacy Officer of the DHS. It would help the Privacy Officer take steps to ensure that DHS agencies are protecting privacy and following current law and policy.”
