Your lead article in the Nov. 6-26, 2006, Accounting Today ("Bill protects CPAs from privacy rules") leaves me with an uncomfortable feeling of your competency and calls into question your credibility to accurately report news about developments in our profession.True, the federal requirements for privacy disclosures under Gramm-Leach-Bliley may have been repealed, but had you done your homework, you would have known that there is a state law in Texas which requires that those of us who practice in the Lone Star State still have to make those disclosures. Sadly, your headline and story will mislead a number of CPAs who practice in Texas.

Hopefully, in the future, you will exercise increased due professional care before publishing information that is only partially true.
