Governors ID-theft-bill release quotes NYCUF
ALBANY, N.Y. (5/23/08)--New York Gov. David A. Paterson's press release Wednesday introducing legislation to strengthen the state's identity theft laws includes a quote from Diane LaVigna-Wixted, executive director of the New York Credit Union Foundation. The bill would restrict the ability of employers to use an employee's personal information--including full Social Security number--or file the information in a non-secured area and more. "We at the New York Credit Union Foundation have been working hard, with the Consumer Protection Board and members of the New York State Legislature, to inform credit union members about the dangers of identity theft," said LaVigna-Wixted in the release. "We commend Gov. Paterson for stepping up to the plate and advancing greater protections for all of us," she added. Noting the implications of identity theft for all consumers and the general public, the foundation produced a series of radio and television public service announcements and an educational 12-minute video for web streaming on its prevention. The video will debut this fall.
