The New Democrat Coalition, which features more than 100 U.S. House Democrats, is planning to announce support of a federal U.S. privacy bill sponsored by Rep. Suzan DelBene, D-Wash., Bloomberg reports. DelBene's proposal includes consumer opt-outs for data collection, storage and sharing. The bill also calls for data subject consent on the use of sensitive data and requires companies to make privacy policies more simple and transparent. Meanwhile, Internet Association President and CEO Michael Beckerman wrote an op-ed for The New York Times’ Privacy Project, which discussed how state privacy laws won't serve Americans as well as one federal law could.
