We hope you will partner with us and our six million members for a better world.

Letter to Oregon legislators regarding SB 703

Consumer Reports wrote to Sen. Prozanski, Rep. Holvey and Rep. Gomberg to urge them to withdraw S.B. 703 and to work with us on legislation that truly protects privacy. For over 80 years, we have worked with consumers for truth, transparency, and fairness in the marketplace. And, we are strong proponents of public policy that bolsters consumers’ privacy and their individual right to choose who accesses their data and for what purposes. It is within this framework that we must recommend that the state of Oregon reject this measure and the dangerous precedent it would establish.
