Tech Trade Groups Oppose Facial Recognition Ban
Currently, no rules exist on how governments can or cannot utilize facial recognition
A coalition of tech companies and trade groups is urging Congress not to pass legislation that would ban government use of facial recognition.
Why it matters: As of now there are no national rules on how governments can or can't use face recognition. Consumer groups have been calling for such a ban, while Microsoft and Amazon have encouraged Congress to regulate, but not ban, government use of the technology.
