Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn) recently introduced H.R. 1770, legislation intended to establish a framework of national data security breach laws, to the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The bill, called the Data Security and Breach Notification Act, will preempt all state data breach laws and replace them with one federal data breach standard. The goal of the bill is to make compliance with data breach requirements easier for U.S. companies, as there are currently 47 states (and the District of Columbia) with separate and distinct data breach laws.
