Pennsylvania Privacy Legislation

Harrisburg, PA, May 24, 2022
—AAF Pennsylvania Leaders, As you may know privacy legislation is up for a hearing on Wednesday, May 25 in the Pennsylvania General Assembly. AAF and some of our allied associations will provide comments, a draft of which is attached. I hope that your local ad club will sign on also as the message is more effective if lawmakers know that it is coming from the local, as well as national industry.

In short, our message is that AAF is in favor of a national privacy standard and does not support state legislation. However, if Pennsylvania is to pass a bill, it should be as similar as possible to measures already enacted in other states in order to minimize confusion for both businesses and consumers. The comments then offer suggestions as to how to achieve that goal.

Unfortunately, as often happens, we have very short notice and hope to file the comments Tuesday (tomorrow) afternoonOnce filed, we will of course make sure you get a copy of the final version to use with members and prospects.

I apologize for the short notice. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for all you do for AAF and the advertising industry.
