Nuala O’Connor’s Testimony Before the House Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Commerce

On behalf of the Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT), thank you for the opportunity to testify about the imminent need for a foundational federal consumer privacy law.

We understand that drafting comprehensive privacy legislation is a complex endeavor. Over the past year we have worked with partners in civil society, academia, and various industry sectors to produce draft legislation that is both meaningful and workable. This testimony will discuss the components of our draft and why they should be incorporated into a federal privacy law.
