CHEYENNE - A bill that would require companies that lose personal information to tell the people who could be harmed cleared a legislative committee Tuesday.
The House Corporations, Elections and Political Subdivisions Committee passed the bill without changing two other provisions to protect consumers and help identity theft victims.
Under the bill, consumers could place freezes on their credit reports to help prevent identity theft. And identity theft victims could clear their names more quickly by having a judge list them in a database of identity theft victims.
The bill headed to the full House for consideration.
