A consumer privacy law on the cusp of enactment in Utah may pave the way for other Republican-controlled states looking to pass similar legislation.
The Utah Consumer Privacy Act is the first comprehensive consumer privacy bill in the US to pass both chambers of a Republican-controlled state. It would give residents the right to know what personal data is being collected and ask it be deleted.
The Utah measure provides protections for consumers that ensure their data is being used in ways they expect, said Tom Foulkes, senior director of state advocacy at BSA | The Software Alliance, in a statement. “This bill takes an important step in acknowledging that companies must protect the privacy of consumers’ personal data and instill trust in technology,” Foulkes said.
