Colorado House Votes on SB190, Senate Reconciliation is Next

Updated 6/9/21 @ 11am: The Colorado Senate unanimously voted 34-0 on concurrence and final passage of SB190. It now heads to Gov. Polis, who will have 10 days to sign or explicitly veto it.CPA applies to businesses collecting data on more than 100,000 individuals, or those earning revenue from the data of more than 25,000 consumers. It includes standard data subject rights, an opt-out consent model with a universal opt-out mechanism, and a right to cure, all subject to normal AG rule-making and enforcement.

CPA is effective July 1, 2023 unless vetoed by the Gov. The biggest difference when compared to Virginia or CPRA is the broad requirement (with fewer exemptions) for data protection privacy assessments.

A more specific compliance issue Colorado presents, according to attorney David Zetoony, is the required data protection assessment. Such examinations are also required in the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act, but Colorado does not exempt companies from these assessments like Virginia.

While the bill must return to the Senate for final reconciliation of amendments made by the House, it’s most likely. Unless the Governor vetos it, which is improbable, the amendments will be reconciled in the next few days.

You Shall Not Pass: WA, OK and FL Privacy Bills at a Standstill

The influx of states proposing and voting on privacy bills has been a good sign for consumers that lawmakers are concerned about data privacy. But at this point, we’ve only seen California, Virginia, and Nevada actually succeed in passing such legislation. Since more states are addressing consumer data privacy, we want to dive into why some aren’t passing the first, second, or even third time.

California Enforcement Agency (CPPA) to Make Compliance Essential for Businesses

When the California Consumer Privacy Act went into effect last year there was concern surrounding enforcement and which business would be the first to face consequences. California voters decided that an agency should be put in place to uphold compliance. This agency, dubbed the California Privacy Protection Agency, is charged with rulemaking and will join the attorney general in taking enforcement actions. The agency has been tasked with fulfilling their initial rulemaking responsibilities by July 1, 2022.

Virginia Has Passed a Privacy Act

Gov. Northam has signed the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act into law.
