Inslee dials in to HP pretexting scandal

During a congressional hearing today on the Hewlett-Packard scandal, U.S. Rep. Jay Inslee called for fast action on a law making pretexting illegal.

“I hope the message is delivered to the leadership of the House of Representatives to pass this bill in the next 24 hours. We can have this on the suspension calendar tomorrow night,” the Bainbridge Democrat said, according to a Reuters story.

Inslee’s on the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations.

In January, long before HP was caught pilfering phone records, Inslee introduced a bill that would have made pretexting clearly illegal. Now he’s backing another bill, the Prevention of Fraudulent Access to Phone Records Act, H.R. 4943, that the committee approved in March.
