  • U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce Chair Frank Pallone, D-N.J., released a statement welcoming the U.S. Federal Trade Commission's move to begin privacy and data security rulemaking, but noted the proposed American Data Privacy and Protection Act "is necessary" and Congress "has a responsibility to pass comprehensive federal privacy legislation to better equip the (FTC), and others, to protect consumers to the greatest extent."
  • The U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Technology Engagement Center Vice President Jordan Crenshaw issued a statement saying FTC rulemaking "only adds yet another layer to the confusing patchwork of emerging privacy laws."
  • Network Advertising Initiative Vice President for Policy David LeDuc, CIPP/US, said an "overly broad, partisan" rulemaking "could undermine the foundations of the digital economy if not pursued judiciously."
  • Consumer Reports Director of Technology Policy Justin Brookman supported rulemaking, saying it is "a critical step for providing baseline privacy protections" and the FTC "has the authority to issue clear rules to safeguard personal data."

Editor's note: The IAPP's Joe Duball reported on the FTC's privacy rulemaking notice.
