The Most Important Actions Congress Can Take on Tech

Protocol, September 1, 2022

By Kevin McAllister 

With Congress set to reconvene after Labor Day, Protocol asked a group of policy experts what they thought the Hill should focus on when it comes to tech in the remaining months of the session.

Victoria Espinel, President and CEO at BSA | The Software Alliance, wrote:

“Tech policy isn’t just for tech companies. Digital transformation is integrating technology into businesses in every industry of every size and impacting workers across all walks of life. Employers in every U.S. district and state are leveraging enterprise software to maintain their businesses and grow. Small businesses are using cloud-based accounting and HR systems, farmers are producing more using less and manufacturers are reducing costs and increasing safety, to list just a few examples.

However, many American businesses are not yet getting the full benefits of digital transformation. The current lack of national technology laws can hinder the adoption of digital technology, as some companies are reluctant to adopt services without greater legal clarity. A unified federal privacy law, in particular, would allow businesses to take full advantage of new technologies and ensure that U.S. consumers have the best privacy protection.

Congress now has the best chance it’s ever had to pass federal comprehensive consumer data privacy legislation. Now is the time to take advantage of this opportunity. At BSA, we hope members of Congress will support the bipartisan American Data Privacy and Protection Act and continue to work with stakeholders to improve the bill so it can pass into law.”
