Senator Urges Privacy Oversight Board Nominations
Time 1 Minute Read
According to BNA’s Privacy Law Watch, on March 8, 2010, Senator Patrick Leahy asked President Obama to nominate members for the dormant Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board.  The Board, which was created in 2004 upon the recommendation of the 9/11 Commission, focuses on ensuring that privacy and civil liberties concerns are incorporated into anti-terrorism laws and regulations.  Although President Obama had pledged in May 2009 to reconstitute the board, which has had no members since January 2008, privacy advocates say that his focus on cybersecurity issues has delayed the nomination process.
