Illinois Civil Justice League President John Pastuovic warns legislators about the perils of HB 2774/SB 1502 & HB 3449 in a recent interview with the Madison-St. Clair Record:
“Internet privacy legislation making its way through Springfield is more in line with the interests of the trial bar than it is with consumer protection, critics say.”
“John Pastuovic, president of the Illinois Civil Justice League, said that everyone would likely agree that reasonable guidelines are needed to ensure consumer privacy, but the current proposals in Springfield “are falling in the same old trial lawyer trap of using lawsuits to enforce the new standards.”
“Pastuovic also said that legislators should keep working until they find a better way to protect consumer data. ‘There has got to be a better way” than what is currently being proposed,’ he said.”
These bills are wrong for Illinois – VOTE NO ON HB 2774/SB 1502 & HB 3449.
