San Francisco Chronicle: Privacy bill back in the hopper

California State Senator Jackie Speier (D-Hillsborough) has re-introduced a new financial privacy bill (SB1 – The California Financial Information Privacy
Act) in the California Senate after a similar measure was killed last year.

“It’s a new Legislature, a new year and a new opportunity to bring financial privacy protection to Californians,” said state Sen. Jackie Speier, D-Hillsborough, as she began her fourth attempt to pass privacy legislation.

This time, Speier has a powerful ally — Senate President Pro Tem John Burton, D-San Francisco — who vowed to “do everything” to ensure the bill passes.
