Since the passage of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in June 2018, over a dozen US states have proposed their own privacy laws, many of which are nearly identical to the CCPA. Some of these proposals have since become law. Others are in different stages of the legislative process. To help clients keep track of the status of these proposed laws, Ballard has launched a US State Privacy Law Tracker. We’ll be updating the Tracker as these laws progress and states propose new privacy laws, so check back regularly.
Just note that the tracker does not include any of the proposed state laws that are presumed dead (e.g, Texas, Washington, Illinois, NJ) or the state laws that are specifically directed toward Internet Service Providers (Maine, Louisiana).
