There has been some movement from U.S. Congress on federal privacy legislation over the past couple of months. A pair of partisan bills has been proposed on Capitol Hill; however, they differ on key topics, such as state preemption and how the laws will be enforced. In this piece for Privacy Perspectives, Alston & Bird's Peter Swire and Future of Privacy Forum's Pollyanna Sanderson offer a proposal on how Congress can bridge the gap on a federal privacy law. "In our work, we are not seeking to resolve this political debate," they write. "We instead seek to provide technical assistance, to assist those from all perspectives to narrow the areas of disagreement."
