In the thirteenth episode of our Legislating Data Privacy podcast series, we talk with Kentucky Republican Senator Whitney Westerfield.

Senator Westerfield is the author of Senate Bill 15, which would have granted Kentucky residents various privacy rights regarding their personal data. Senator Westerfield’s bill was, in many respects, stronger than other bills proposed in 2022, drawing inspiration from GDPR and containing a private right of action.

In this episode, Senator Westerfield discusses SB 15’s interesting path during the 2022 legislative session and his goals for the bill in the 2023 session. Kentucky will be a state to watch in 2023.
