California: CPPA sends letter opposing ADPPA to House of Representatives

The California Privacy Protection Agency ('CPPA') announced, on 15 August 2022, that it had sent a letter opposing H.R. 8152, the American Data Privacy and Protection Act ('ADPPA') to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. In particular, the letter provides that the ADPPA's pre-emption seeks to remove important protections and significantly weaken the privacy Californians currently enjoy under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (last amended in 2019) ('CCPA'). More specifically, the letter notes that the ADPPA could nearly eliminate the CPPA's ability to fulfil its responsibility to protect Californians' privacy rights. In addition, the letter states that the ADPPA seeks to pre-empt state privacy laws and other laws and aims to prevent the states from strengthening privacy protections in the future, highlighting that the ADPPA is not only substantively weaker than the CCPA, but would remove important protections that benefit not just Californians, but the rest of the country.
