The Senate and the House of Representatives passed a transportation authorization bill – the Surface Transportation Reauthorization and Reform Act (H.R. 22) – on Thursday. The Senate vote count was 83-16, while the House passed the bill by a 359-65 vote. The legislation now awaits President Obama’s signature.

The bill included the text of the Eliminate Privacy Notice Confusion Act (H.R. 601), an amendment by Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.).

Additionally, consumers will receive a privacy notice upon opening a new account.
