Is a U.S. federal privacy law in our future?

Combining the privacy protections included in three previously independent bills — the U.S. Consumer Data Protection Act, Filter Bubble Transparency Act and Deceptive Experiences To Online Users Reduction Act — Senate Republicans’ SAFE DATA Act  provides some of the strongest privacy protections to date, writes Müge Fazlioglu for the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).

However, the two key dividing lines remain over whether federal privacy legislation will include a private right of action and preempt state laws that offer a higher standard of privacy protections, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act.
