Assessing the Federal Data Privacy Landscape: A Discussion of the American Privacy Rights Act

May 23, 2024 at 3:00 PM ET

Congress has been working on comprehensive federal data privacy legislation for decades without reaching agreement. But the finish line may be closer today than before. With the recent introduction of the American Privacy Rights Act (APRA), the chairs of the Senate and House Commerce Committees announced a bipartisan compromise, hoping to end the legislative stalemate.

Our panel of data privacy experts will take a deeper look at APRA, including its provisions and implications. Who wins and who loses in APRA’s mix of provisions from preemption to enforcement? Is the decision to embrace regulation of algorithmic decision-making a deal maker or breaker?  And does it stand a chance of passing in an election year? Tune in to hear our panelists explore the ongoing dynamic of federal privacy legislation in the United States.
