The U.S. House of Representatives this week approved legislation designed to reduce identity theft by better restricting the access to and use of Social Security numbers, according to a press release from Sen. Dianne Feinstein's office. Feinstein (D-CA) introduced the Social Security Protection Act of 2010 along with Sen. Judd Gregg (R-NH). It now heads to President Barack Obama for signing. "Social Security numbers are among Americans' most valuable but vulnerable assets," said Feinstein. "Identity theft is a serious concern for all consumers, and we should make every effort to protect personal information."
