A new Congress means some new faces have taken charge of the marketing research and data analytics industry's policy interests in the Senate.

On data security and consumer privacy, and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) -- and authorization and oversight of the FTC and FCC -- we deal primarily with the Senate Commerce Committee and Senate Judiciary Committee. For Census, we work with the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and Senate Appropriations Committee.
