Privacy law in the United States continues to evolve. Prospects for federal legislation seem to come and go daily. A number of individual state laws are poised to be enacted, and several have introduced new approaches to privacy or privacy enforcement.

The California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), the Colorado Privacy Act (CPA) and the Virginia Consumer Data Privacy Act (CDPA) are all slated to begin enforcement in less than a year. There are three alternative privacy bills in Washington state. Indiana is a surprise, with a bill modeled after Virginia’s. Massachusetts and Ohio are considering bills that differ substantially from other data privacy approaches.
