Americans are sharing more of their personal information online than ever before, which is why it is time for a national privacy standard. We need clear rules of the road to ensure Americans the same data protections wherever they go. Privacy does not end at state lines and Americans deserve better than a patchwork of different and conflicting state laws.

Here is what industry experts and top voices in privacy are saying about the Energy and Commerce Republicans’ new privacy framework.
Every Republican Member of our Consumer Protection and Commerce Subcommittee will be leading on our solutions to protect people’s privacy. Here is what they’re saying about the bill.
We must have a uniform national privacy standard to protect all Americans. https://t.co/prHfw2PttM
