Avast blog: A 2022 update on data privacy legislation

Last year, Mississippi didn’t pass its privacy bill and more than a dozen states had bills that are still under consideration. Iowa, Indiana, and Oklahoma are all in the process of moving various privacy bills through their legislatures, and several other states have begun to consider new laws. Also, seven states are considering biometric information privacy legislation.

The most comprehensive source remains the above annotated map from Husch Blackwell, which will link you to each state’s legislation. If you are looking for more analysis, this page from the National Conference of State Legislatures has more contextual explanations.

In my latest post for Avast, I review some of the recent developments and further refinements on the three states that have enacted privacy legislation — California, Colorado and Virginia.
