NetChoice Glad to See Congress Talking About a National Privacy Standard for American Data

WASHINGTON—This weekend, House Energy and Commerce Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Senate Commerce Chair Maria Cantwell released a discussion draft of the American Privacy Rights Act (APRA), a new proposal to create a U.S. national standard for data privacy.  

“NetChoice is encouraged to see that Congress is putting a national privacy standard back on its agenda, and we applaud Chair Rodgers and Cantwell’s leadership on this issue. We look forward to engaging with Members in both chambers to ensure the legislation gets privacy protections right for all Americans and isn’t overly burdensome on small businesses trying to compete in the digital marketplace,” said Carl Szabo, NetChoice Vice President & General Counsel. “This is a good step to put essential conversations about a U.S. national privacy standard back on the table.”
