Is it the dawning of the Age of Consumer Privacy in the United States? An examination of the most recent proposals for federal privacy legislation may suggest as much. While the devil, as they say, is in the details, it’s encouraging to see common themes in the two principal bills: the Consumer Online Privacy Rights Act, introduced by Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA), and the Consumer Data Privacy Act, currently being circulated by Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) as a discussion draft. Our discussion will address agreement, discord, and the prospect of compromise.
