Senate Judiciary Committee Announces New Subcommittees, Assignments

February 14, 2011

The Senate Judiciary Committee is taking on privacy issues with Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., designated to chair a new subcommittee on Privacy, Technology and the Law, while Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., has been named as ranking member, according to an announcement Monday.

Other senators on the subcommittee include: Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn.

"The boom of new technologies over the last several years has made it easier to keep in touch with family, organize a community and start a business," said Franken. "It has also put an unprecedented amount of personal information into the hands of large companies that are unknown and unaccountable to the American public. As chairman of this new subcommittee, I will try to make sure that we can reap the rewards of new technology while also protecting Americans' right to privacy."

On the Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights Subcommittee, Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Wis., has been named as chair with GOP freshman Sen. Mike Lee of Utah as ranking member.

Other members of this subcommittee will include: Schumer, Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., John Cornyn, R-Texas, Franken, and Blumenthal.
