Schaer, Garcia & Lagana Bill to Better Secure Personal Health Information Gains Final Legislative ApprovalLegislation Assembly Democrats Gary Schaer, Carmelo Garcia and Joseph Lagana sponsored to better secure personal health information was passed unanimously by the General Assembly on Thursday, giving it final legislative approval.
"We've seen far too many examples of personal information being stolen from retailers and other invasions of privacy, so some common sense is needed when it comes to securing health information, which for many people is as personal as it gets," said Schaer (D-Passaic/Bergen). "This bill is a reasonable requirement to protect personal privacy in this digital age."
