Press Release from Congresswoman Annie Kuster
July 20, 2022
Washington, D.C. — Today, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02), a senior member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, helped advance her legislative amendment to ensure the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children can continue their critical joint work with law enforcement to recover missing children and combating online child exploitation as part of H.R. 8152, the American Data Privacy and Protection Act. This bill passed the Energy and Commerce Committee and now heads to the House Floor for passage.
“The growing presence of predators targeting and exploiting children online is alarming,” said Amanda Grady Sexton, Director of Public Affairs at the NH Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. “We must do everything in our power to stop child exploitation and equip our law enforcement officers and child protection organizations with the tools and resources they need to hold perpetrators accountable and keep our kids safe. The amendment offered by Rep. Annie Kuster today will help achieve that goal right here in New Hampshire.”
