FTC Accepting Comments on ID Theft

The President’s Identity Theft Task Force announced that it is seeking public comment on various possible recommendations to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the federal government’s efforts to reduce identity theft. The Task Force is chaired by Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales and co-chaired by Federal Trade Commission Chairman Deborah Platt Majoras and participants include the Securities and Exchange Commission and other federal agencies.

Although there is no legal requirement that the Task Force solicit public comment on its recommendations, the Task Force agencies believe that seeking comment on these issues will supplement the research and analysis already conducted, provide further information about the proposals it is considering, and identify areas where additional recommendations may be warranted. Comments must be filed on or before Friday, Jan. 19, 2007.
