U.S. Congress is reportedly making strides toward a bipartisan agreement on federal privacy legislation. But what types of consensus and compromise are fueling the momentum? IAPP Senior Westin Research Fellow Müge Fazlioglu, CIPP/E, CIPP/US, examined privacy bills proposed during the 117th Congress that have received support from both Democrats and Republicans.
