EPIC Statement on American Data Privacy and Protection Act

June 22, 2022

EPIC issued the following statement following the introduction of the American Data Privacy and Protection Act:

“EPIC commends Representatives Pallone, Rogers, Schakowsky, and Bilirakis for their work on the American Data Privacy and Protection Act. It is long past time for Congress to enact comprehensive privacy legislation. The United States faces a data privacy crisis—Americans have lost control of their data and online tracking is out of control. ADPPA’s focus on data minimization, strong protections for sensitive data, and civil rights protections will go a long way in curbing the data abuses plaguing Americans today. While there is still work to be done, the ADPPA is the most promising privacy legislation we’ve seen in many years and EPIC encourages Congress to move forward on this legislation.” -Caitriona Fitzgerald, EPIC Deputy Director
