Texas, Florida Latest States to Pass Data Privacy Bills

CTEC_Privacy2023_HeatMap_v1 (14)Texas and Florida are likely to soon join four other states that have passed comprehensive data privacy laws in 2023. 

The bills in Texas and Florida await their governors' signatures.

The other four states that have passed data privacy laws this year include Montana, Indiana, Iowa and Tennessee.

All the bills contain a Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) exemption. ALTA has held that any comprehensive data privacy legislation should include an exemption for entities subject to the GLBA.

Additionally, financial institutions are required to assure the security of this information and provide comprehensive disclosures to consumers. Click here to view ALTA’s principles for data privacy laws.

Five other states—California, Colorado, Connecticut, Utah and Virginia—already have enacted comprehensive consumer data privacy laws.
