WASHINGTON – January 24, 2020 – BSA | The Software Alliance offered the following statement on comments filed to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce regarding draft privacy legislation.
“BSA member companies want a strong, comprehensive federal privacy law so consumers can have lasting confidence in how their data is being used. We thank the staff on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce for their bipartisan work to develop a discussion draft,” said Craig Albright, Vice President, Legislative Strategy at BSA | The Software Alliance. “This is yet another sign of the bipartisan consensus that has emerged on the importance of establishing a new federal law. We appreciate the opportunity to provide feedback to help improve the bill going forward.
