    Assessing the Federal Data Privacy Landscape: A discussion of the American’s Privacy Rights Act

    Assessing the Federal Data Privacy Landscape: A discussion of the American’s Privacy Rights Act

    Congress has been working on comprehensive federal data privacy legislation for decades without reaching agreement. But the finish line may be closer today than before. With the recent introduction of the American’s Privacy Rights Act (APRA), the chairs of the Senate and House Commerce Committees announced a bipartisan compromise, hoping to end the legislative stalemate.
    Our panel of data privacy experts will take a deeper look at APRA, including its provisions and implications. Who wins and who loses in APRA’s mix of provisions from preemption to enforcement? Is the decision to embrace regulation of algorithmic decision-making a deal maker or breaker? And does it stand a chance of passing in an election year? Tune in to hear our panelists explore the ongoing dynamic of federal privacy legislation in the United States.

    Explainer 65 - Reviewing Michael Cannon's Book "Recovery"

    Explainer 65 - Reviewing Michael Cannon's Book "Recovery"

    In this RTP explainer episode 65, we are joined by Michael Cannon, Director of Health Policy Studies at the Cato Institute, and Christina Sandefur, Executive Vice President of the Goldwater Institute to discuss Michael Cannon’s new book, Recovery.

    Listen in as these experts consider the role of government agencies like the FDA in health spaces across America. "Recovery" discusses treatments approved by the FDA and the implications of approved drugs entering the market. Americans are inadvertently affected by the decisions of government agencies. With this said, "Recovery" argues the FDA takes away people’s rights to make their own health decisions. Does the FDA prohibit safe and effective drugs from entering the market? In this episode, experts discuss the implications of the decisions made by the FDA and the consequences of unsafe access to drugs.

    Deep Dive 289 - Grading the Biden DOL and NLRB’s Use of Regulatory Authorities

    The Regulatory Transparency Project (RTP) is pleased to host a stellar panel of top labor and employment law experts for a lively discussion in which our panelists will grade the Biden Administration’s administrative, regulatory, and enforcement activity under the Department of Labor (DOL) and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
    How have these agencies’ approaches to administrative law under the Biden Administration been similar to or different from prior administrations? Where have they been aggressive, where have they been conservative, and why? What have been the regulatory successes of the first three years? The failures? And what unaddressed or latent regulatory issues might the agencies be taking up in 2024 (and beyond)? Tune in and find out how the experts view the Biden Administration’s actions from divergent points of view.

    Featuring:

    Moderator: Gregory Frederick Jacob, Partner, O'Melveny & Myers LLP
    Judy Conti, Government Affairs Director, National Employment Law Project
