Moran Tees Up Data Privacy Bill As Senate Effort Splinters

A bipartisan pair of senators has drafted a data privacy bill that would give the Federal Trade Commission more enforcement tools, while pre-empting state laws.

Sens. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) had been working with a group of other Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee members to draft a bill, but that effort stalled in recent months. Moran said he and Blumenthal are now writing their own bill in a bid to see if they can attract the support of other lawmakers, as the August recess looms.
