Wise of Congress
to not allow states to go above and beyond on their own. California has already proven that they will take mile after mile when given an inch.
That being said, California is right that the law needs to be stronger, and enforcement needs to have razor sharp teeth backed by the jaw of a Rottwieler. When big data slurping corps can't control themselves they need to be slapped down hard, with much pain attached. Like perhaps fines in the double digits and based on net global gross income, not profits. Or better than fines, let's see some C-suite execs in fashionable new pumpkin orange jumpsuits with numbers on the back for a few years. Corps change when they feel real pain, not when they're fined 32 seconds worth of profit.
Icon's as close as we get to orange jumpsuits around here.
