Consumer Groups Lament Big Tech Effort to Erode Consumer Privacy

The Consumer Federation of America (CFA)lambasted legislation passed by the Virginia legislature that advocates say only purports to protect privacy while actually protecting Big Business and eroding consumer rights.

The Consumer Data Protection Act (HB 2307/SB 1392) is, according to those monitoring these issues, nearly identical to the Washington Privacy Act. The bill passed both chambers in the Virginia legislature on Feb. 5th with broad, bipartisan support and now must be reconciled by Feb. 27th.
