In this JDSupra article you'll learn about:
- The American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADDPA) was released for consideration in June. ADDPA broadly defines sensitive data and will require additional protections for such data.
- The bill would be enforceable by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) as well as by state attorneys general in civil actions.
- The California Attorney General has led a coalition of nine other state attorneys general calling for Congress to respect the roles of states to enforce and provide strong consumer privacy laws. Utah and Connecticut were the next two states to pass comprehensive data privacy legislation, increasing the total number of states with consumer data privacy laws to five.
