 From National Journal's Tech Daily (3/5/02):

Privacy:   The Virginia legislature has approved an Internet privacy 
resolution that calls on state, local and campaign Web sites to 
comply with the privacy-protection technology known as the Platform 
for Privacy Preferences (P3P). The technology allows Web users to set 
a desired level of privacy and receive warnings about company 
policies that do not meet their settings. The resolution, H.J. 172, 
also requests that the Virginia Information Providers Network 
(VIPNet) work with its parent company, the National Information 
Consortium, to encourage state and local governments to adopt P3P 
into their Web sites. The measure also says that Virginia's governor 
should encourage executive agencies to deploy P3P technology and that 
online privacy legislation should recognize P3P-compliant policies as 
a means of providing Internet users with privacy notices. The state 
Senate adopted the resolution by voice vote Feb. 28; the state House 
had done so Jan. 24.
