Republicans Introduce Privacy Bill That Would Override State Laws

Four Republican senators have introduced a privacy bill that would override state privacy laws, other than ones requiring notifications of data breaches.

The proposed law would require companies to obtain consumers’ affirmative consent before transferring their “sensitive” information — which the bill defines as including financial account numbers, persistent identifiers, precise geolocation data, and data revealing people’s race, ethnic origin, religion and sexual orientation.

The Setting an American Framework to Ensure Data Access, Transparency, and Accountability Act (SAFE DATA Act) would also require companies to allow consumers to access, edit and delete data about them.
