Sen. John Kennedy to talk consumer protections

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - U.S. Senator John Kennedy will be in Lake Charles on Friday, March 9, talking about his proposed fix in the wake of the massive Equifax security breach.

Kennedy, a Louisiana republican, is working with Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) on an amendment that would better protect consumers.

Their bill would make the big three credit reporting agencies create a website so people can get free access to their credit information, and allow them to easily opt out of third parties obtaining their data.
