MEETING WITH REPRESENTATIVE KINZINGER’S LEGISLATIVE DIRECTOR
On January 30, 2020, at 1:00pm PST, Bryan and I had our eighth call with the Legislative Director (LD) from Representative Kinzinger’s office. The subject once again, revolved around the safety and security amongst our platforms and how social media needs to be responsible for what they allow to be posted upon their site. We are all still in agreement that the current laws are expired in the realm of technology (such as Section 230 of the Communication Decency Act). We are also on the same page that something needs to be done sooner than later. That being said, please know they are working diligently on a change within the laws, and we have once again offered our time and expertise with anything they may be working on.
When we inquired again what more we can do to help any change along, we were told that the letters, and show of any kinds of support are key. The pleas for change, the stories from victims and families are all tools that can bring new laws to light. Congress needs to see and hear the harm the scams cause their constituents including on a global scale.

We also were informed that the Legislative Director would like to have another call with us within the next week or two for a follow up on what’s to come. Bryan and I were, again, very thankful for the time the LD gave to us along with the information to pass on.
The call lasted approximately 40 minutes.
