The Washington Post reports lawmakers want Apple to take on a bigger role in the debate and creation of a federal U.S. privacy law. Apple has voiced its support for a federal rule; however, the tech company has yet to officially support any bill proposed on Capitol Hill. “I would argue there’s a need for Apple to be a more vocal part of this debate,” said Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va. Apple Spokesman Fred Sainz said in a statement the tech company reiterates its offer to help write legislation but added it will never create a company political action committee. “We believe privacy is a fundamental human right and is at the core of what it means to be an American. To that end, we advocate for strong federal legislation that protects everyone regardless of which state they may live,” Sainz said. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
