EU-USA: DATA PROTECTION AGREEMENT: Senate Panel Reschedules Vote on Judicial Redress Act

"The Senate Judiciary Committee announced today they would vote on the Judicial Redress Act next Thursday, three days before American and European negotiators reach a crucial deadline in their bid to strike a new data-transfer pact. The bill is seen as crucial to negotiators’ ability to reach that deal.

The committee was set to consider the measure, H.R. 1428, yesterday, but opted to delay that vote at the request of Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah). The committee will now vote on it during their next executive business meeting. If negotiators from the U.S. and the European Union do not reach a new pact by Jan. 31, European authorities may begin prosecuting companies for transferring data."
