BSA Applauds Passage of Colorado Privacy Act
WASHINGTON – June 8, 2021 – BSA | The Software Alliance welcomes today’s passage of the Colorado Privacy Act, a bill with bipartisan sponsorship that passed both chambers of the Colorado legislature with bipartisan support. The legislation includes robust protections for consumers’ data and places clear obligations on businesses to handle that data in trusted and responsible ways.
"BSA welcomes today’s passage of the Colorado Privacy Act, which provides Coloradans with strong privacy protections,” said Tom Foulkes, Senior Director, State Advocacy at BSA | The Software Alliance. “While the bill is not perfect, it reflects several years of important work and compromise across a number of states to develop a strong new model for privacy legislation. We are particularly glad to see it recognizes the different roles that different types of companies play in handling consumers’ personal data—and its creation of obligations that fit those different roles, including those of data controllers and data processors. Like Virginia’s new privacy law, Colorado has taken a different approach than California and provides policymakers a new way to think about privacy laws. We look forward to continuing to work with states as they consider these important issues, and hope that action by the states will ultimately lead to a national standard that creates comprehensive data privacy protections for all consumers.”
