With the California Consumer Protection Act looming, industry stakeholders are keen for bipartisan privacy legislation to actually move forward in Congress — despite predictions that legislative work will grind to a halt in 2020 due to the presidential election.
Craig Albright, vice president of legislative strategy at the Business Software Alliance, said that while the industry group is optimistic that there will at least be committee action, the success of any privacy legislation will likely depend on the bill itself. “The real question is, can they draft a bill that hits the sweet spot? Because if they get one that can hit the sweet spot, you can really see it move,” he said.
