What's Next on Capitol Hill?

The Washington Post looks at four privacy proposals that have come forward in this congressional session, asking, "what's next for privacy on the hill?" Experts weigh in, with Justin Brookman of the Center for Democracy and Technology saying that the bipartisan nature of the bills might give them a chance of moving, and Amy Mushahwar of Reed Smith saying that despite the momentum of some of the bills, "my enthusiasm is tempered by the calendar, given the looming election season." Mushahwar adds that "These bills have to be implemented by data centers and require a practical mindset." (Registration may be required to access this story.)
