Virginia Senate Also Passes Consumer Data Protection Law

Husch Blackwell LLP

Keypoint: Virginia is on the verge of becoming the second state, after California, to enact consumer privacy legislation.

As we previously reported, the Virginia House of Delegates overwhelmingly passed HB2307, the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (Act). On February 3, 2021, the Virginia Senate unanimously passed a companion bill, SB 1392. The bills will need to be reconciled before the legislature closes on February 11, 2021. However, that appears to be a mere formality given that the bills are identical and the House bill is already working its way through the Senate.

For an overview of the Act, see our prior post available here.
