Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), and the Personal Data Protection and Breach Accountability Act (S. 1535) sponsored by Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.).

The bills have a number of similar provisions, such as requiring companies to take measures to secure personal information and notify consumers when their personal data has been breached.
