FOSI Briefs the Hill: Congressional Action on Online Safety and Privacy Bills
Congress has been quite productive on kids’ digital safety and privacy policy this summer. Senate and House committees advanced the first major reforms to online privacy in decades, and introduced the very first federal bill that focuses specifically on online safety. The Senate Commerce Committee passed the Kids Online Safety Act (KOSA) and the Children and Teens’ Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA 2.0), while the House Energy and Commerce Committee passed the American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA). These are significant developments, but the bills still face some obstacles before becoming law.

This FOSI Briefs the Hill conversation will examine these three bills, including recent amendments, their potential impact on the online experiences of children, teens, and families, and how companies would comply with the potential laws for creating safer online experiences that prioritize privacy and data minimization. Panelists will discuss what next steps may be, if further changes are needed before becoming law, and how recent congressional action complements or contradicts the online safety and privacy actions that states and other countries have already taken.

Featured speakers will include:
Adam Kovacevich, Chamber of Progress
Lauren Merk, Future of Privacy Forum
Jamie Susskind, Office of Senator Marsha Blackburn

Andrew Zack, FOSI's Policy Manager, will open the discussion and more speakers will be added shortly.

This is a widely attended event and is open to the press. For inquiries, contact press@fosi.org.
