Dear Chairman Thune and Ranking Member Nelson,

We, the undersigned organizations and trade associations, thank you for holding today’s hearing examining safeguards for consumer data privacy. In today’s digital economy, we believe that it is vital consumers know that data is used responsibly and that their privacy is protected.

We urge Congress to pass a federal privacy law that will put an end to consumer confusion, respect privacy, and provide regulatory certainty to the business community.

As the Committee continues to address this important issue, we stand ready to work with you to develop solutions to enhance consumer privacy as well as promote economic growth and innovation.
