This article includes many practical ways to inform people of how both proposed bills and citizens can help protect themselves from idenity theft. It is informative and engaging. The writer uses factual information to support his statements and suggestions. Though this is an opinion piece it is relevant to many citizens nationally because this is a growing issue due to technology and the role of the internet in purchasing items and accessing accounts.
