The Freeze Begins

This afternoon the Governor signed Carlene Walker’s Credit Freeze Bill, one of the crown jewels of the 2006 Legislative Session.

Effective September 2008, Utah consumers will be able to stop unauthorized viewers from accessing their credit records.

From ConsumerAffairs.com:
"Utah now leads the nation with this innovative approach to protect consumers. We've hammered out a solution that is friendly to consumers and hostile to identity thieves," [Attorney General Mark] Shurtleff said.
From the Insurer’s Association:
"Utah legislators -- and especially Sen. Carlene Walker -- showed great leadership in approving measures that provide strong protection for consumers from illegal access to their personal information without needlessly interfering in relationships between consumers and the businesses that serve them."
The Governor also signed Senator Walker's SB 18, SB 51, SB 69, and SB 184.
