The Electronic Privacy Information Center released a report that graded several privacy bills proposed by lawmakers. The organization analyzed legislation by Sens. Ed Markey, D-Mass., Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev., Marco Rubio, R-Fla., Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., John Kennedy, R-La., Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., and Reps. Suzan DelBene, D-Wash., Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., and Thomas Suozzi, D-N.Y. Of those bills, EPIC graded Markey’s “Privacy Bill of Rights Act” as the top document. “We looked closely at privacy laws enacted in the United States and Europe, and also international standards for data protection,” EPIC Policy Director Caitriona Fitzgerald said. “We developed a 100 point scale and graded the bills accordingly. [Sen.] Markey’s bill received a score of 48. Most of the other bills were much lower.”
