U.S. Senator Introduces New Privacy Legislation
U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) introduced a new data privacy bill. The bill, similar to the staff discussion draft introduced by U.S. Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS) last year, creates a national privacy standard that would preempt state laws, unlike privacy legislation introduced by Democrat U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA). Senator Moran’s bill also includes increased resources for the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) such as authorization to hire new employees to increase the agency’s privacy enforcement.
Senator Moran’s proposal does not address vehicle data access. The Automotive Service Association has been a longtime advocate for vehicle data access.
