If this bill had wording strong enough to state equivocally that the IT infrastructure this bill would pro-port to build would not outsource patient/hospital/insurance records maintenance to a foreign country, I would vote for it. We need to set clear limits though on corporations, insurers, and the government to prevent such information leaking. As a matter of individual privacy, offshoring/insourcing (h1b) workers should not have access to private information of this nature, thereby they should not be allowed to work on computers/servers that contain this information. As a practice, and due to this, offshoring/insourcing (h1b) this type of functional administration in information technology should be outlawed.

I support this bill. This should be taken further, however, in my opinion. Congress should pass a law that limits the ability of American corporations from outsourcing/insourcing (h1B). The limit should be based on whether or not any personally identifiable data on citizens is accessible by the foreign workers due to the nature of the work. Companies should not be allowed to exposed the personally identifiable data of citizens (health care information, social security number, age, name, address, occupation, education, etc.) to foreign nationals, or foreign countries, without the citizens express consent.

I don’t support this bill for one reason, this bill will allow for the continued sharing of personal information regarding the citizens of this country with foreign entities. It astounds me that data on citizens is so readily shared with other countries via the practice of offshoring/insourcing (h1b). Social security numbers, credit card numbers, addresses, names, birthdays, etc. It is apparent this practice should be deemed illegal. I would support any bill that makes illegal the practices of offshoring/insourcing (h1B) any IT function/data containing the personal information of citizens of this country. If for nothing less, than the peace of mind of the citizens.
