U.S. Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., today postponed his plan to add a proposal limiting the information schools can give private companies about students without a parent's specific permission to a new education bill until it reaches the Senate floor. Sen. Dodd, who had been expected to act as the bill went through the Senate labor committee, made the move after the Association of National Advertisers wrote committee members warning the proposal would create "unprecedented regulation on the collection and use of aggregate information in our society." Sen. Dodd has said the legislation would prevent companies from conducting research on students or getting information on their preferences without parental approval.
