US House privacy bill differs from Senate counterparts

January 13, 2020, Global Data Review

Lindsey Tonsager is quoted in Global Data Review regarding a recently released draft privacy bill from the US House Committee on Energy & Commerce which differs from current Senate bills. With roughly a quarter of House Democrats coming from California, Ms. Tonsager told GDR that there will be major opposition to pre-emption in the House. “We’ve already seen the California block in the House speaking very vocally that they don’t want preemption,” she says. On the other hand, state legislative activity will put more pressure on Congress to establish a baseline standard, she adds. “A federal standard is important – particularly important since New Hampshire, Virginia, Illinois and Nebraska have already introduced state bills in 2020.”
