House Passes Gramm-Leach-Bliley Privacy Disclosure Exemption


On March 12, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 749, a bill that would exempt from the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act’s annual privacy policy notice requirements any financial institution that (i) provides nonpublic personal information only in accordance with specified requirements and (ii) has not changed its policies and practices with regard to disclosing nonpublic personal information from its most recent disclosure. The bill is identical to one passed by the House last year, H.R. 5817, but which the Senate never addressed. H.R. 749 now awaits consideration by the Senate.
