Lawmakers considering identity-theft law | ajc.com
Lawmakers considering identity-theft law | ajc.com: "Two Georgia senators said Thursday that they plan to introduce legislation aimed at making it harder for criminals to commit identity theft.
Separate bills being drafted by Sens. Bill Hamrick (R-Carrollton) and David Shafer (R-Duluth) were prompted by reports this week that ChoicePoint, an Alpharetta-based company that collects personal data on nearly every American, is notifying up to 35,000 California residents that it mistakenly gave out their information to bogus businesses."
"Potential victims in California are being notified because state law requires it in such cases.
Hamrick said that he is working on a bill that would require companies to notify Georgians of identity theft."
