The Los Angeles Times Editorial Board wrote a piece opposing preemption in the proposed American Data Privacy and Protection Act. The board said the current framework around preemption is "unacceptable" due in large part to the fact that the ADPPA is "weaker than the privacy laws on the books in California." A proposed solution by the board would be to devise a model closer to the Clean Air Act, which "allows California to set a tougher standard than the national one and lets states choose which they want to follow." Editor's note: The IAPP's Joe Duball reported on ADPPA preemption opposition from U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
