David Stauss - Privacy Expert
Senator Maroney worked tirelessly to bring Connecticut citizens data privacy rights enjoyed by residents of only four other states in the country. Senator Maroney’s bill – the Connecticut Data Privacy Act – is one of the strongest in the country. Thanks to Senator Maroney, Connecticut residents will have the right to know what information companies collect about them and to access and delete that information. Connecticut residents will also be able to opt out of the sale of their personal information and of online targeted advertising. Make no mistake – the passage of the bill was a monumental task that took hundreds of hours of Senator Maroney’s time and an incredible dedication to working through a complex issue. Senator Maroney also worked across the aisle, gaining widespread support of Republican lawmakers. Connecticut citizens are lucky to have such a strong leader working for them.

Maroney didn’t have to work with companies or across the aisle here. Connecticut is a “blue trifecta,” meaning he had the votes to pass whatever he wanted so long as there was full Democratic support. He actively chose to hear out all stakeholders and take a bipartisan path to a law. He went out of his way for the sake of balance.
