Privacy and consumer law are two vital issues that will continue to affect the lives of Maryland residents. As Chair of the Judicial Proceedings Committee, Senator Frosh has responsibility for legislation in the Senate dealing with these important subjects. He has sponsored bills protecting the privacy of citizens’ personal information in Motor Vehicle Administration files and authorizing Maryland’s Attorney General to prosecute violators of Federal anti-telemarketing regulations. The Judicial Proceedings Committee approved legislation establishing a task force to recommend identity theft remedies, beefing up the original bill at Senator Frosh’s recommendation to pay specific attention to protecting social security numbers. Senator Frosh has also sponsored bills banning minimum price fixing and creating new tools to crack down on people who defraud the State’s Medicare program.
