Four Major Tech Issues Facing the Biden Administration
The Hill, November 11, 2020
By Chris Mills Rodrigo
President-elect Joe Biden will face a vastly different tech landscape in January than the one he interacted with just four years ago as vice president. While he enjoys overwhelming support in the tech industry, a return to the rosy D.C.-Silicon Valley relationship of the Obama-era is unlikely anytime soon.
Federal data privacy legislation has been bogged down in Congress for years now, but there is hope that a new administration and increasing pressure coming from a new law in California could provide fresh momentum.
Craig Albright, vice president of legislative strategy at the trade group BSA | The Software Alliance, suggested a deal could be made to make a strong enough federal law so that preemption would not be needed. “Because the current Congress laid so much groundwork in terms of getting proposals out, the next Congress and the next administration will have a lot to work with,” he told The Hill. “We think that there's a deal to be had, that has strong enforcement that makes the bill worthy of preemption.”
