USA: Californians for Consumer Privacy opposes ADPPA in letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Californians for Consumer Privacy addressed, on 6 September 2022, a letter to United States House of Representatives Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, opposing H.R. 8152 for the American Data Privacy and Protection Act ('ADPPA'). In particular, Californians for Consumer Privacy explained that the ADPPA would pre-empt the Californian data privacy legislation, regarded by Californians for Consumer Privacy as the strongest privacy legislation in the US.

Furthermore, Californians for Consumer Privacy stated that the ADPPA would significantly weaken existing privacy laws, and that it should be drafted as a national 'floor' for privacy rights and not as a 'ceiling', following the example set by other federal privacy laws that also set a floor for rights that states can strengthen by adopting stronger protections, such as the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ('HIPAA'), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 ('GLBA'), and the Fair Credit Reporting Act of 1970 ('FCRA').
