Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., released a set of principles for an "Internet Bill of Rights," according to a column in The New York Times. U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., tasked Khanna with creating the principles. Khanna worked with tech companies and advocacy groups, such as Google, Facebook and the Center for Democracy & Technology in generating the list. The principles include the right for a data subject to access all information a company holds on them, the right to opt-in to data collection and sharing, a principle similar to the right to be forgotten, and the right to data portability. Pelosi said movement on these principles and other data privacy efforts could commence should the Democrats take back control of the House of Representatives in November.
