Duffy Amendment Unianimously Passes House

Promotes #Privacy for Students

Washington D.C. - U.S. Representative Sean Duffy (WI-07) introduced an amendment to H.R. 3136, the Advancing Competency-Based Education Demonstration Project, a bill that would give schools the flexibility to base course completion on competency rather than time in a classroom. The Duffy Amendment would require those institutions to notify students of the possibility that software companies they contract with may access their personally identifiable information and could be sold to another party. The Duffy Amendment would also give students an opportunity to opt-out from having their personally identifiable information sold.
