Key Republicans Release Privacy Bill Focused on Transparency
Bloomberg Government, September 17, 2020
By Rebecca Kern
Senate Republicans introduced long-awaited privacy legislation that would require businesses to be more transparent in consumer data collection and allow courts to grant injunctive relief in cases of privacy violations.
Though passage is a long shot this year, the introduction of the bill and next week’s hearing set the stage for a privacy push in 2021, according to the vice president of legislative strategy at BSA | The Software Alliance. The group’s members include Microsoft, International Business Machines Corp. and other software firms.
“Obviously they’re not going to pass a bill into law, but they’ve made some important progress this Congress and this year,” Craig Albright said in an interview. “This will help collect the gains that they’ve made.”
