PROPOSED CONSUMER PRIVACY LAW
SCHEDULED FOR FINAL VOTE
AT DALY CITY COUNCIL MEETING TONIGHT

Vice Mayor Tissier Seeks Council's Vote and Local Support
for Stringent Ordinance Against Unwanted Financial Disclosure

   
Who:
The City Council of Daly City will consider adopting Ordinance No. 1295 at tonight's regular meeting. The five-member Council is comprised of Mayor Michael Guingona, Vice Mayor Adrienne Tissier, and Councilmembers Madolyn Agrimonti, Carol Klatt and Sal Torres.
 
 
What:

Ordinance No. 1295 would "require local financial institutions to provide their customers notice and meaningful choice about how consumers' personal information is shared or sold by their financial institutions." Scheduled for tonight's meeting is the second reading and vote on the ordinance.

Vice Mayor Adrienne Tissier, the sponsor of the proposed ordinance that was originally introduced on June 24th, is expected to ask the Council to adopt the proposed consumer privacy law. If it passes, Daly City will become the first city in California to adopt the consumer privacy law.

"This measure places Daly City at the cutting edge of protecting our citizens against predatory schemes. We need to finish the job the State Legislature has failed to do in Sacramento year after year. Local efforts, such as Ordinance No. 1295, should serve as a wake up call for federal and state legislators," the Vice Mayor noted.

 
 

When:

Monday, September 9, 2002 The regular City Council meeting starts at 7 p.m.
 
 
Where:
City Hall - Council Chambers 333 - 90th Street, 2nd floor, Daly City.
 
 
Why:
Federal legislation currently allows financial institutions and insurance companies to trade consumer information virtually without restriction. At the state level, legislation by Senator Jackie Speier (D - San Francisco / San Mateo) failed for two years in a row, despite last-minute efforts.
