This workshop looks at the most important developments on the state level. California has received significant attention over the past year given the CCPA and a new ballot initiative, but there are a number of other important state developments. States as geographically diverse as Florida, Nebraska, and Washington have introduced proposals for their own comprehensive privacy laws, which diverge in important ways from the CCPA and CCPA copycat legislation. The first part of this workshop will do a deep dive on these state proposals (some of which could become law by the time of the workshop) and the key battlegrounds and issues in the proposals. The second part of the workshop looks to other important state law developments, including 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 the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, and data security and breach notification developments.
