Aug 11, 2022
Press Release
Energy and Commerce Chairman Committed to Passing Comprehensive Privacy Legislation

Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) released the following statement today on the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) advanced notice of proposed rulemaking on online consumer privacy: 

“The lack of online privacy rights in the United States is completely unacceptable. I strongly believe the federal government should be taking every step it can to protect consumers. I appreciate the FTC’s effort to use the tools it has to protect consumers, but Congress has a responsibility to pass comprehensive federal privacy legislation to better equip the agency, and others, to protect consumers to the greatest extent. Ultimately, the American Data Privacy and Protection Act is necessary to establish comprehensive national statutory privacy protections for all Americans and I’m committed to getting it passed and signed into law.”
