House Committee Moves Data Privacy Bill Forward

Legislation intended to increase Americans’ ability to protect their online information.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee approved the American Data Privacy and Protection Act to go to the House floor. The panel approved the proposed bill in a bipartisan vote, stating it will “give Americans more control over their personal information online than any other law in existence.”

“We are one step closer than Congress has ever come to establish national privacy and data security protections,” stated Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington. “The American Data Privacy and Protection Act includes the most robust privacy protections to date in the U.S. It prohibits Big Tech from tracking, predicting, and manipulating people’s behaviors for profit without their consent.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For members of the House to have discernment regarding the data privacy legislation.
  • For legislators of both chambers as they seek to improve Americans’ control over their own information and online activities.
  • For wisdom for U.S. officials as they work to protect children interacting in cyberspace.
