This week President Joe Biden stood before a joint session of the 118th Congress and gave his State of the Union address. The President offered his vision for the next several years, which included a focus on Big Tech regulation and privacy issues. As we covered in a previous post, the American Data Privacy and Protection Act, a comprehensive national data privacy and data security framework, garnered much attention last year – but never made it to the House floor for a vote. Notably, Republicans are now in the majority in the House of Representatives, and Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has previously expressed interest in privacy legislation.
