Washington, D.C. – Congressman Bill Foster (IL-11) is joining Democratic members of the Financial Services Committee in calling for an inquiry into the Target data breach that led to personal information, including credit and debit card accounts, being compromised for millions of Americans.

“The millions of Americans who were impacted by this data breach deserve to know why this happened, how quickly consumers were notified, and what is being done to prevent it from happening again,” said Foster.  “This was one of the largest data breaches in history, and my constituents want answers. The people in the 11th District of Illinois, and all Americans, deserve the right to use their credit and debit cards without risking their personal and financial security.”

Foster was joined by 17 Democratic members of the Committee in sending a letter to Chairman Jeb Hensarling requesting a full Committee hearing to investigate the data breach.
