Event Summary

Logistic Note: All in-person event attendees must arrive at the main entrance of the Capitol Visitor Center. Please allow for ample time to proceed through security and locate the event space.

Congress has recently made some much-anticipated progress toward advancing a bipartisan privacy bill. The current compromise, the American Data Protection and Privacy Act (ADPPA), still has a long way to go before becoming law, but it represents considerable efforts from both sides of the aisle to come to a consensus on divisive issues that have sunk previous bills. If the ADPPA or similar legislation passes, it would finally provide the United States with a single, comprehensive data privacy law that protects all Americans and simplifies compliance for businesses.

Join ITIF for a discussion about the progress Congress has made in crafting bipartisan privacy legislation, the ADPPA’s current legislative status, and the remaining areas of debate regarding the legislation.
