Keypoint: Florida moved one step closer to passing consumer data privacy legislation although differences between the House and Senate bills need to be resolved if the legislation is to pass the legislature.
On April 21, the Florida House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed HB 969 by a vote of 118 to 1. The bill was subsequently referred to the Senate Rules Committee.
Meanwhile, the Senate is still considering its version of consumer data privacy legislation, SB 1734. On April 9, the Senate bill was placed on the calendar for a second reading, but it has not moved since.
