Democratic Privacy Bill Allows Lawsuits Over Data Violations (1)

“This bill is creating a ‘Sophie’s Choice’ for America’s mid-sized businesses,”
said Carl Szabo, vice president of NetChoice, a right-leaning tech trade association that counts Alphabet Inc.‘s Google and Facebook as members.
“Do they want a patchwork of state laws or a tsunami of class action lawsuits?”
Szabo’s group has been among those looking to congressional legislation to overrule state laws.
“There’s no point in doing a federal privacy bill unless it creates a standard, nationwide law and eliminates the patchwork problem,”
Szabo said.
“We don’t need a 51st privacy law.”
