The Institute for Policy Innovation pressed Congress to overhaul the Electronic Communications Privacy Act with the release Monday of a publication from Bartlett Cleland, the group's resident scholar of tax and innovation policy.

"The good news is that legislation to update ECPA has been introduced in both the U.S. House and Senate, with broad, bipartisan support," Cleland said.

"In the U.S. House, the Email Privacy Act currently has 292 cosponsors -- more than enough to ensure passage. The bad news is that Congress has shown little urgency in moving the legislation."

He judged lack of urgency to be "inexcusable."
