The full title of the Bill is: “To extend Privacy Act remedies to citizens of certified states, and for other purposes.”
The President commented: “The bill I’m about to sign is entitled the Judicial Redress Act bill. And what it does in the simplest terms is makes sure that everybody’s data is protected in the strongest possible way with our privacy laws — not only American citizens, but also foreign citizens.” Watch here the video of President Obama signing the Act.
