Security freezes; fees. Prohibits a credit reporting agency from requiring a consumer to pay a fee to place a security freeze on the consumer's credit report if the consumer has not previously requested the placement of a security freeze from the consumer reporting agency. Currently, a consumer may be required to pay a fee of no more than $10 to place a security freeze on his credit report. The measure does not prohibit a consumer reporting agency from charging a fee to temporarily lift or to remove a security freeze or to place a security freeze on the consumer's credit report if it is the second or subsequent request for placement of a security freeze. Victims of identity theft are currently exempt from the fee. Read the Bill »
