There are two aspects of the draft that will likely prove particularly controversial.
As part of their compromise, lawmakers would give Americans a private right of action in this bill. That’s a blow for the tech industry, which has fought such provisions in states across the country.
“We have concerns about whether the bill could result in a new wave of nuisance lawsuits and look forward to reviewing the bill further,” Craig Albright, vice president of Legislative Strategy at BSA | The Software Alliance, said in a statement.
But lawmakers also handed business interest groups a win by including a provision that would allow the federal privacy law to preempt state privacy laws — with a few notable exceptions.
