senate Bill S. 142

Should the Federal Trade Commission Help Congress Craft a National Data Privacy Law?

Argument in favor

Consumers’ data is immeasurably valuable to companies in the digital economy. Thus, it’s necessary to protect their information from bad actors and companies collecting and selling their information without their permission. This bill is a first step towards creating those protections.

Better to have one national standard than 50 separate and different ones. Give states a time limit to put forward what their wish list items are.

There should be additional legislation that provides explicit mention that civilian data will not be harvested or hosted by Congress or the FTC to cover up more spying.

👍🏻SEN. RUBIO SENATE BILL S.142 TO PROTECT CONSUMER DATA👍🏻 I’m in full agreement that Consumers’ data is immeasurably valuable to companies in the digital economy. Thus, passage of the Senate S.142 Bill is necessary to protect their information from bad actors and companies collecting and selling their information without their permission. The Rubio S.142 Senate bill is a first step towards creating those protections. SneakyPete....... 👍🏻👍🏻S.142👍🏻👍🏻. 4*10*19.........

Argument opposed

This bill overrides states’ abilities to create their own more stringent consumer data protection laws and has a long timeframe for the enactment of the actual law. Additionally, it’s not clear that the FTC is equipped to determine the right consumer data protection framework.

Government doesn’t know how to write a clean law without adding special interest and favors to a bill.

Don’t override states rights on this to protect their consumers. Keep the FTC and Marco Rubio out of this.

    I am cautiously supportive of this bill because it at least would force legislators to begin real bipartisan negotiations regarding the issues in internet privacy that will leave us in peril if we do not begin to address them.

    Yes, there should be one national standard and the Federal Trade Commission should be a major influence on the data privacy laws, but not the only one. The administration Chief Technology Officer should probably have oversight responsibility. Technology and user companies should have a role, but not a dominant one. This needs to be protection for users and not industry. We have to understand that if we establish regulation, we will pay for it via a combination of corporate expense, taxes and increased prices.

    The bill appears to protect business more than individuals. Legislation to protect individuals from unscrupulous businesses is needed.

    Marco Rubio is certain to be protecting big business interests while giving away our privacy. I'm sure there's nothing that he has created that I would be willing to support.

    YES. Make it say that you own your data. Make it clear that use of said data requires explicit permission. Make it say that the majority of any monetization from use of said data goes to the individual and NOT to some company.

    I would love to say yes, go for it.....the more stakeholders involved in crafting a vision is usually a good idea..... However, the FTC does not have the staff. Such collaboration would take critical personal off the task of safeguarding our elections. Right now with National Security being weakened daily, I just don’t believe exposure to MORE risk factors would be a great idea. “The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on Wednesday told Congress that it only has 40 full-time employees dedicated to overseeing internet privacy and data security and requested lawmakers give the agency more resources to adequately police tech companies. FTC Chairman Joseph Simons, a Republican appointed by President Trump, wrote in a letter to House leaders this week that the commission lags far behind other developed countries’ data watchdogs. "For example, the U.K. Information Commissioners' office has about 500 employees, and the Irish Data Protection Commissioner has about 110 employees,” Simons wrote. “Although these entities have somewhat different mandates, the contrast is stark.“

    I think that it would be better if the states would be in charge of this matter. I don't trust Trump's policies or appointees.
