Geoffrey Manne, president and founder of the International Center for Law and Economics, says that regardless of any individual state law’s quality, there is an advantage to having diversity in law. Manne believes states should be allowed to choose whether their laws would remain in effect, superseding APRA. “Neither all consumers nor all businesses have the same kind of privacy risks and preferences,” Manne says. “As a practical matter, it’s very hard to prescribe rules that are optimal for 330 million people. And that’s true with all law. Instead, you could end up with a lot of much more tailored privacy regimes, and the opportunity for companies to match their needs with privacy regimes being offered.”
