CR recommendations to the House Committee on Energy & Commerce regarding the American Data Privacy and Protection Act

CR letter to E&C re ADPPA 3.0

Consumer Reports writes to follow up on our letter of July 17th and to express our appreciation to the Committee for the latest amendments contained in the Second Amendment in the Nature of a Substitute (“Second AINS”) released earlier today. These changes address many of the concerns raised in our letter, and as a result we believe that, if enacted as written, the Second AINS would dramatically improve the online data ecosystem and offer robust privacy protections for American consumers that do not exist today. Our primary request to the Committee is to not backtrack on the changes made in the Second AINS, especially when it comes to online tracking and targeted advertising which are the primary source of many of the concerns that motivate this bill.
