In a letter to the Colorado General Assembly, Gov. Jared Polis, D-Colo., addressed the Colorado Privacy Act after signing it into law. Polis thanked the sponsors and proponents of the bill for committing to consumer privacy but acknowledged the law still leaves several issues outstanding. "My chief concern is ensuring Colorado's competitiveness with other states as an incubator of new technologies and innovations," Polis writes, adding the bill "will require clean-up legislation next year, and in fact, the sponsors, proponents, industry, and consumers are already engaged in conversations to craft that bill." Editor's note: IAPP Westin Fellow Sarah Rippy analyzed the Colorado Privacy Act for The Privacy Advisor. The IAPP also has a chart comparing state privacy laws located in the Resource Center.
