Sinema Calls for Bipartisan Legislation to Protect Arizonans’ Privacy

May 1, 2019

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema today spoke at a Senate Commerce Committee hearing on the need for bipartisan data privacy legislation. Sinema specifically highlighted the need to protect Arizona seniors’ data privacy.
“Elderly Americans are often the targets of fraud. I’m committed to ensuring that any federal privacy law gives seniors in Arizona and across the country the tools they need to thrive in the digital economy and the protections they need to enjoy a productive and secure retirement,” said Sinema, a member of the Senate Commerce Committee.
Sinema has long championed Arizona seniors. She led the passage of the Senior Safe Act in the House and worked with Republican Senator Susan Collins as it passed the Senate and became law in 2018. The Senior Safe Act enables financial institutions to work with law enforcement in order to stop the financial abuse of seniors.
