A group of Senate Democrats unveiled a federal privacy bill Tuesday to give consumers more control over their data as lawmakers race to negotiate a bipartisan plan before the end of the year.
Craig Albright, vice president of legislative strategy for BSA, welcomed the bill in a statement but said the group doesn’t “agree with everything” the legislation proposes. “Any lasting solution will have to be bipartisan,” Albright said, adding that there should be “one clear national standard.”
