Schumer signals slower pace on TikTok measure in the Senate

March 14, 2024

Vance, R-Ohio, and Michael Bennet, D-Colo., have said they wanted to review the House bill before deciding how to proceed. Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., supported the House measure and said he expected overwhelming support in the Senate. Rep. Suzan DelBene, D-Wash., voted for the House measure but said it represented “a whack-a-mole approach” to protecting Americans’ data privacy. Congress needed to pass a comprehensive federal data privacy bill to “put Americans back in control of their personal information,” she said. Some lawmakers of both parties, a minority so far, opposed the TikTok bill on the grounds of free speech and presidential overreach.
