Hello all,

Scott and I will be in touch next week about plans for our next all-group call.

In the meantime, the following webinar may be of interest:


            Wednesday, Jun 03, 2020 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

Cambridge Analytica, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and the California Consumer Privacy Act propelled federal privacy legislation to unprecedented momentum at the outset of the 116th Congress. Legislative proposals from both sides of the aisle, including Sen. Maria Cantwell’s (D-Wash.) Consumer Online Privacy Rights Act and Sen. Roger Wicker’s (R-Miss.) United States Consumer Data Privacy Act, showed promising development and consensus on many provisions. However, broad polarization on a few pivotal issues—pre-emption and private right of action—effectively stalled the privacy debate.

On June 3, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings will host a webinar on a forthcoming report titled “Bridging the gaps: A path forward to federal privacy legislation.” Panelists will discuss the state of privacy legislation and other issues explored in the report.

Viewers may submit questions for panelists by emailing [log in to unmask] and via Twitter @BrookingsGov or with #ThePrivacyDebate.


Happy Friday.
