Amended Washington Privacy Act Passes House
The Washington House of Representatives passed an amended version of the WPA containing a private right of action.
Among other changes, the House WPA contains a private right of action that would allow state residents to sue data controllers for technical violations of the bill’s provisions. The House WPA now moves back to the Senate for further consideration. Lawmakers have until Thursday, March 12, to resolve the differences between the House and Senate WPA versions.
