Nine States Now Have Privacy Laws

May 31, 2023

May was a big month for state privacy laws. As Schneier on Security reported, Indiana, Iowa and Tennessee all passed state privacy laws. They join California, Colorado, Connecticut, Utah, Montana and Virginia.

In Indiana, Iowa and Tennessee, there is no private right of action, which means it will be up to the states to enforce the laws.

The failure to allow a private right of action has been criticized by many commentators who called the laws “toothless.”
