McMorris Rodgers Leads Group of Bipartisan Leaders to Advance American Data Privacy and Protection Act Through Committee

The Legislation is the Strongest Consumer Data Privacy Bill to Advance in Congress

Washington, D.C. – Today, Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) led the House Energy and Commerce Committee in passing the bipartisan American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA). This historic legislation is the strongest consumer data privacy bill to advance in Congress.

Republican Leader Rodgers, Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06), Gus Bilirakis (FL-12), and Jan Schakowsky (IL-09) released the following joint statement today after House Energy and Commerce Committee members voted to pass H.R. 8152, the American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA) by a vote of 53-2: 

“Today’s vote has been years in the making and is a major step forward in our bipartisan effort to establish national data privacy protections for all Americans.   

“The American Data Privacy and Protection Act puts people back in control of their online data. It creates a strong national standard that will finally minimize the amount of Americans’ information companies are allowed to collect, process, and transfer. This will rein in Big Tech’s power and establish clear, robust protections for people, especially children. Under our solution, companies will face real consequences if they track our kids’ data or use that information to exploit them for profit.

“We’re grateful to our colleagues on both sides of the aisle for their invaluable contributions throughout the Committee process and look forward to continuing to work together to bring this national standard for privacy to the House floor soon.”
