Comprehensive federal privacy bill released
The US House of Representatives and Senate have released a bipartisan draft discussion of a comprehensive data privacy bill, the American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA).
The ADPPA is the first comprehensive federal privacy bill to gain bipartisan and bicameral support. This bill has 4 main parts:
- Duty of loyalty
- Consumer data rights
- Corporate accountability
- Enforcement, applicability, and any other miscellaneous provisions.
ADPPA would include a private right of action and would preempt most state laws, with some exclusions. The State Attorneys General and FTC would have enforcement rights, and the FTC would have authorized rulemaking powers.
