WESTFIELD, N.J. — Two of New Jersey members of the House of Representatives – Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) and Congressman Frank Pallone (NJ-06) – will get to question one of America’s titans of tech next week.
As members of the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee, Lance and Pallone will participate in next Wednesday’s 10:00 a.m. hearing featuring Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
Zuckerberg and his company have come under withering criticism after it was discovered that Facebook allowed 50 million users’ personal information to come into the possession Cambridge Analytica, a consultancy group that worked on Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
“There are many important questions the American people want answered concerning the security of their private information and what steps Facebook is taking to protect consumer data and the integrity of its platform,” said Lance. “These issues are of paramount concern for millions of Americans utilizing their social network. I appreciate Mr. Zuckerberg’s willingness to testify before our committee and I look forward to his answering our questions on April 11th.”
