BSA’s Meghan Pensyl on AI Legislation in CT and CO

Politico Pro

By Mallory Culhane

To tailor AI regulation to Connecticut, Maroney spearheaded a state working group, which was loaded with tech figures including a former longtime IBM executive and representatives from Amazon Web Services and tech industry groups TechNet and BSA | The Software Alliance. The group also included AI researchers and experts from law firms and academia.

Not all industry groups are trying to kill the bill. BSA | The Software Alliance’s Director of Policy Meghan Pensyl said the Colorado bill needed “a bit more work,” particularly around a requirement that people who develop and use AI must report to the state attorney general if their system caused or is likely to cause algorithmic discrimination.

“I think the speed of the process in Colorado didn’t necessarily allow for that engagement,” she added.
