Hearing today on the Hearing Protection Act will likely be one of the most important things Congress does today.
For the next four days, Congress will hear from representatives from leading technology companies like Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Twitter about the hearing protection legislation that the House passed earlier this year and the Senate has now passed.
The hearing will also be important to companies like Netflix and Google.
The company recently announced that it has agreed to work with the Department of Justice to ensure that its users do not have to pay a $15 monthly fee to access certain video content.
This will be a major win for consumer protection.
The hearing will likely also be an opportunity for companies like Facebook and Google to show off new ways of offering consumers the ability to opt-out of their data collection.
