Blackburn Statement On FTC Privacy Proceeding

August 11, 2022

U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn Issued A Statement On FTC Privacy Rules:

“For a decade, I have said that consumers need more transparency and choice about how their data is used. For this reason, I welcome a federal privacy law that would set those parameters and provide certainty for consumers and businesses. But I am concerned that the FTC has decided to move ahead with a far-reaching digital surveillance inquiry and rulemaking crusade without waiting for the results of active discussions in Congress. Without guardrails set by Congress, this is doomed to become another cautionary tale of how the left uses the regulatory state to tear down and rebuild the economy according to their own vision.”
