On April 24, 1996, the Senate Labor and Human Resources Committee will consider S. 1360, the "Medical Records Confidentiality Act". A recently strengthened S. 1360 would create strong, comprehensive privacy safeguards for the health data of all Americans. CDT supports the Bennett-Leahy bill and believes that its enactment would create strong, enforceable privacy protections where few currently exist.
