2023 AAF Legislative Comments

As presently drafted, HB 4 contains provisions that are out-of-step with privacy laws in other states. We therefore encourage Texas legislature to update the bill so it more closely aligns with recently enacted legislation.
The bill’s terms, coupled with its overly broad definition of “consumer health data,” could unintentionally impede Washingtonians from receiving useful and relevant information about products and services they may desire.
We believe that SB 1026 is overly restrictive and ignores existing protections for children under federal privacy law and Virginia’s Consumer Data Protection Act.
We provide input and suggested changes to discrete proposed regulatory provisions to help ensure the CPA implementing regulations are consistent with the law, aligned with other state approaches to privacy regulation, and protective of consumers.
