TechTank: Will Americans Finally See Bipartisan Federal Privacy Legislation?

Earlier this month, Congress made an important step forward in finalizing comprehensive federal privacy legislation with the release of a draft of the American Data Privacy and Protection Act. Co-authored by U.S. Senator Roger Wicker (R-Miss) and House members Frank Pallone (D-NJ) and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash), the Act is the result of bipartisan efforts. It calls for data minimization, limited target advertising, data portability, enhanced protections for children, and seeks to combat algorithmic discrimination. It also preempts state laws and provides a limited right of action.
