In an interview with Protocol, former U.S. Federal Trade Acting Chair and Commissioner Maureen Ohlhausen opened up regarding the American Data Privacy and Protection Act discussion draft and the FTC's enforcement plans. On the draft bill, Ohlhausen broke down existing issues with proposed preemption while explaining how the bill helps give the FTC "clear direction" with its authority. She also stressed the FTC "shouldn’t be a legislature" and "there are a lot of risks and opportunity costs" if the commission adds privacy rulemaking on top of potential legislation. Editor's note: Ohlhausen participated in a recent U.S. Congressional hearing on the proposed discussion draft, recapped by the IAPP's Joe Duball.
