Padlock on a keyboard

Overview

State legislatures have long been involved in regulating privacy of various types of information or of specific industry sectors. For example, laws protecting student information, individuals’ social security numbers, medical information and other types of information. 

However, consumer privacy issues have grown in importance in state legislatures recently, including in 2022.

At least 35 states and the District of Columbia in 2022 introduced or considered almost 200 consumer privacy bills in 2022. 

Comprehensive (sometimes also called omnibus) consumer privacy legislation was the most common type of bill being considered—almost 70 bills in at 25 least states and the District of Columbia.

Comprehensive legislative proposals generally regulate the collection, use and disclosure of personal information by businesses and provide an express set of consumer rights for collected data, such as the right to access, correct and delete personal information collected by businesses.

Five states have enacted comprehensive consumer privacy laws: 

Some of the other more common types of consumer privacy legislation tracked here concern the collection of data from consumers by commercial entities, online services or commercial websites, including bills related to website privacy or children’s privacy on the internet, direct-to-consumer genetic testing, ISP and information/data broker regulation, and other consumer privacy issues.
