USA: Speaker Pelosi addresses comparisons of ADPPA to Californian privacy laws

United States House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, issued, on 1 September 2022, a statement on the American Data Privacy and Protection Act ('ADPPA'), following its advancement out of the Energy and Commerce Committee. In particular, Pelosi commended the Committee for its work on the ADPPA and the provision of consumer rights for the protection of personal data. However, Pelosi outlined concerns that the ADPPA may not meet the standards for consumer privacy protection set by Californian privacy laws, stating that "it is imperative that California continues offering and enforcing the nation's strongest privacy rights". Further to this, Pelosi highlighted the intention to continue to work with Chairman Pallone to address these concerns.

California Privacy Protection Agency ('CPPA') Executive Director, Ashkan Soltani, issued, on 1 September 2022, a statement in response to Pelosi's comments on the ADPPA. In particular, Soltani noted that, "The California Privacy Protection Agency applauds Speaker Pelosi's commitment to ensuring strong privacy protections, in California and across the country. We look forward to working with the Speaker and Chairman Pallone to ensure that any federal privacy legislation sets a true floor for privacy protections and preserves the key role of the states to innovate, particularly in response to rapidly evolving threats to privacy."
