Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights Draws Fire

Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights Draws Fire
BY CHRISTINE BRENNAN
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Jan Schakowsky (IL-09), Ranking Member of the Committee’s Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade Subcommittee, issued the following statement on Friday upon release of the Obama Administration’s Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights.

Pallone expressed specific concerns, though, that the Administration’s proposed changes would actually weaken existing privacy protections and the framework for privacy protections moving forward:

“Today (Feb. 27), the Obama Administration released its Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights. Unfortunately, not only does this bill fail to move consumer protection forward, it may move it backward.
