Senators ask FTC to clarify privacy strategy

Published on .

A bipartisan group of seven members of the Senate Commerce Committee is calling on the Federal Trade Commission to clarify whether it wants legislation from Congress on privacy. The group also is asking the FTC to let consumer groups into negotiations with the Network Advertising Initiative, a group of third-party ad servers, on a self-regulatory code to maintain "credibility." The letter, which follows a committee hearing last week, was sent today by U.S. Sens. Richard Bryan (D., Nev.), Conrad Burns (R., Mont.), Max Cleland (D., Calif.), Ernest Hollings (D., S.C.), Daniel Inouye (D., Hawaii), John D. Rockefeller IV (D., W.Va.) and Ron Wyden (D., Ore.).
