TELEPHONE RECORDS AND PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT OF 2006 -- (House of Representatives - April 25, 2006)

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. CANTOR. Madam Speaker, I rise today in support of the Law Enforcement and Phone Privacy Protection Act of 2006.

As America continues to prosper, cell phones are becoming increasingly central to our everyday lives. We use this technology to keep in closer contact with our families, manage our livelihoods, and stay in touch with friends. We trust that the records of private conversations remain safe. Law enforcement must have the tools necessary to ensure the privacy of our cell phone records and prosecute those who invade our lives.

Today, criminals can use our cell phone records to expose a government informant, steal our personal information, or commit other forms of fraud.

This bill takes strong action to protect the privacy of American's cell phone records. By providing tough new protections, we can better ensure the privacy of confidential cell phone records. Law enforcement and prosecutors can impose serious criminal penalties on those who unlawfully invade and use our cell phone records.

Congress has a duty to protect all Americans and their confidential cell phone records.
