The Hill reports a bipartisan group of U.S. senators has asked the Federal Trade Commission to uphold strong rules and protections while considering potential amendments to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. The group, which includes Sens. Ed Markey, D-Mass., Josh Hawley, R-Mo., Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., penned a letter to "strongly caution [the FTC] against undertaking a process that ultimately weakens children’s privacy instead of improving it." The senators added the FTC is "at risk of favoring the interests of giant tech companies" and that they would like to see amendments "that prioritize children’s privacy and well-being." The letter was delivered ahead of Monday's FTC COPPA workshop.
