Washington Privacy Act: Amendments Jeopardize Protections for Consumers
Seattle Times, March 4, 2020
By Mike Hintze
If enacted, the Washington Privacy Act, currently being considered in the state Legislature, would be the strongest, most comprehensive privacy law in the country. It would give Washington residents new rights and new protections they do not currently have under either state or federal law.
That is why a wide range of experts and advocates, from both civil society and industry, have praised its provisions. That includes the Future of Privacy Forum, the Business Software Alliance, the Washington Retail Association, the Center for Democracy and Technology, Washington State’s Chief Privacy Officer, Katy Ruckle, and others.
