State Privacy Laws

Guiding clients through the changing landscape of U.S. state privacy laws.

Privacy law in the United States is rapidly changing. The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) took effect January 1, 2020, and became enforceable July 1, 2020, bringing sweeping change that affords considerable privacy rights to California residents and adds significantly to the compliance obligations of covered entities. In November 2020, California voters passed an amendment to the CCPA, which went into effect January 1, 2023. Lawmakers in Virginia and Colorado then passed similar bills. In 2021 alone, legislatures in 27 states considered enacting similar legislation, including Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Utah, Texas, Vermont and Washington. Other states are expected to follow. Additionally, related privacy measures are emerging. In Illinois, for example, numerous companies are facing compliance and litigation burdens stemming from the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA).
