USA: Chamber of Commerce releases letter on national privacy legislation

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce released, on 31 May 2022, a letter sent to members of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation and the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce, addressing the potential for national privacy legislation. In particular, the letter notes, among other things, concerns with such legislation being 'rushed', and that such a law should not provide for a private right of action and should instead be enforced by the Federal Trade Commission. As such, the letter states that the Chamber of Commerce will 'strongly oppose legislation that fails to provide meaningful preemption or any proposal that creates a blanket private right of action'.
