Legislation preventing data broker sales to government agencies moves forward


The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday advanced legislation closing loopholes that allow data brokers to sell consumer data to law enforcement and federal agencies.

The bill addresses longstanding concerns from civil liberties and privacy advocates that such purchases allow law enforcement to evade the Fourth Amendment, which protects against warrantless searches. In the House, the bill is co-sponsored by four Republicans and four Democrats, including ranking committee member Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York.
