Kerry and McCain Press for Final FTC, DoC Reports
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.November 9, 2011
Sens. John Kerry (D-MA) and John McCain (R-AZ) have written to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Department of Commerce (DoC), pressing for the release of both agencies' final reports on consumer privacy, The Hill reports. "Congress and the public could use the guidance of the expert agencies in the form of final reports to help make sense of current practices and how to best protect innovation without sacrificing people's privacy," the senators wrote. At the 33rd International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners last week, officials from the FTC and DoC indicated separately that their final reports would be released soon.
