Advertising in the Washington Labyrinth

March 19, 2019

Executive Summary

Divided government has returned to the nation's capital with a vengeance. This creates very high hurdles for major legislation. Will Congress be consumed by gridlock and the latest Trump tweet, or can they find a way to act on issues the advertising industry cares about? The importance of federal privacy and data security legislation has never been greater as a number of states continue their regulatory push. With the Democrats now in control of the House, we are likely to see activity on issues like prescription drug advertising, food advertising, and advertising to children. Several key commercial speech cases also remain percolating in the courts. ANA's Dan Jaffe will provide an update on these and other important advertising and marketing legislative, regulatory, and legal issues.
