“This draft bill is a solid compromise between businesses and privacy advocates,”

said Carl Szabo, Vice President and General Counsel for NetChoice.

“By eliminating a patchwork of differing and potentially conflicting state laws Sen. Wicker’s bill protects citizens’ privacy while helping America’s small businesses.”

“While there are parts of the bill that should be improved before it becomes law, Sen. Wicker’s bill presents the best opportunity to turn years of congressional debate on privacy into action.”

“Like GDPR, this bill applies privacy laws to all data collectors — aiding privacy and security across the board. Unlike CCPA, Sen. Wicker’s bill is more comprehensive and doesn’t have carve outs for special interests.”
