Article: Tech industry’s critical policy issues likely tabled as Congress heads for recess

Summary: In a round-up of tech-related policy issues CNBC provides an update on the American Data Privacy and Protection Act. While this comprehensive data privacy bill quickly moved out of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, it does not currently have the support of Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., chair of the Senate Committee of Commerce, Science and Transportation. While privacy advocates are not optimistic that the bill will pass this year, they believe that the progress made provides a strong foundation for a privacy bill next year.
