State Legislatures Are Off to the Privacy Races
New Hampshire legislators introduced new data privacy legislation, New Hampshire House Bill 1680.
The legislation is similar to the California Consumer Privacy Act (which we’ve written extensively about before, including here and here ). It grants consumers access, portability, transparency, non-discrimination, deletion, and opt-out-of-sale rights (or opt-into-sale rights for minor consumers) with respect to their personal information.
New Hampshire’s is the first data privacy bill we have seen this season, but it’s worth noting that Virginia and Illinois have introduced their own bills. Additionally, several states, including Washington and New York, had proposed privacy bills in the 2019 legislative session.
