Senate, House Leaders Float Bipartisan Data Privacy Proposal
Law 360, June 3, 2022
By Allison Grande
Software industry group BSA applauded the bipartisan effort, noting that such a push was the only way to get a strong, comprehensive federal privacy law across the finish line.
Craig Albright, vice president of legislative strategy at BSA, applauded the lawmakers for including provisions to require the use of impact assessments to help prevent discrimination, but he noted that overall, "this draft isn't workable in its current form and needs significant improvement to ensure it actually protects consumer privacy in practice."
