to ensure that consumers suffering from credit or identity theft are protected while also limiting abusive lawsuits that result in increased cost to business - especially small businesses -  and potentially increased prices to consumers.

This is all part of the Fair and Accurate Credit Tranactions Act of 2003 (FACTA) that was passed to prevent identity theft and credit card fraud. This bill makes the previously passed legislation much more sound, and leaves Americans more secure.
