California Privacy Protection Agency Executive Director Ashkan Soltani wrote a letter to U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., doubling down on its opposition to the proposed American Data Privacy and Protection Act. Soltani told House leadership the ADPPA's "sweeping preemption" works to "remove important protections and significantly weaken the privacy Californians currently enjoy." Soltani called preemption "an anomaly for federal privacy legislation" and finds it "concerning given the rate at which technology continues to advance and evolve." Editor's note: The IAPP's Joe Duball reported on the CPPA's emergency meeting addressing ADPPA concerns.
