Officials in the European Union (EU) and United States have been scrambling to replace the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor – the data privacy accord – for the past four months. Now, more details have emerged about the new tentative agreement, dubbed the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, and they are shaking things up. Any American company doing or considering doing business in Europe or collecting data from European citizens must now assess whether and how to legally comply with requirements relating to the transfer of data from the EU to the U.S. in this unsettled interim.

The Senate Judiciary Committee today successfully reported H.R. 1428, the Judicial Redress Act of 2015.

On March 10, 2015, Senators Tom Udall (D-N.M.) and David Vitter (R-La.) introduced the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (S. 697), to modernize the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). This bipartisan “Udall-Vitter” bill, which as introduced had eight Democratic and nine Republican sponsors and co-sponsors, likely marks a turning point in the long history of efforts to amend TSCA. It is off to a quick start, with a hearing held on March 18 before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. However, it already faces a challenge in the form of a competing bill, the Alan Reinstein and Trevor Schaefer Toxic Chemical Protection Act (S. 725), introduced by Senators Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Ed Markey (D-Mass.), although with no Republican co-sponsors. The “Boxer-Markey” bill features provisions from earlier Democratic bills that had attracted no Republican support.
