Keypoint: Connecticut moves one step closer to enacting consumer data privacy legislation with a bill generally modeled on the Colorado Privacy Act.
On April 20, 2022, the Connecticut Senate voted unanimously (35-0 with 1 abstention) to pass Senator Maroney’s SB6. The bill is generally modeled on the Colorado Privacy Act (CPA) with some differences such as providing for greater children’s data privacy rights than found in the CPA.
The bill now moves to the House floor. It will not go through a committee process in the House because Connecticut uses joint committees. The Connecticut legislature adjourns May 4, 2022.
