This workshop looks at the most important developments on the state level. California has received significant attention over the past several years, but there also are newly enacted privacy laws in Virginia and Colorado. And the Utah legislature recently has passed its own privacy legislation.  We also have seen state legislatures in Florida, Washington, New York and elsewhere take steps to move forward with proposals for their own comprehensive privacy laws, which diverge in important ways from the California framework. In addition, the Uniform Law Commission has developed model state privacy legislation that takes a different approach. The first part of this workshop will do a deep dive on these state proposals and the key battlegrounds and issues in the proposals. The second part of the workshop looks to other important state law developments, including enforcement by state attorneys general, the proliferation of litigation under the Illinois biometrics laws, and state debates over facial recognition and other biometric privacy issues. Other key topics under debate by state policymakers include regulation of direct-to-consumer genetic testing, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, and data security and breach notification developments.
