Gov. David Ige, D-Hawaii, has vetoed Bill HB 702 HD1 SD2. The bill would have been the first in the U.S. to prohibit the sale of location data gathered by satellite-navigation-equipped devices without user consent. In his letter to the state legislature, Ige wrote he vetoed the bill “because it attempts to regulate a complex national industry without sufficient and appropriate wording to ensure consistent compliance and enforcement. The lack of clarity in this bill as currently drafted will lead to ambiguity, confusion, and unintended consequences should it become law.” Ige added his administration will work with a task force to offer the legislature recommendations “to ensure that appropriate legislation can be introduced next session to address this important issue.” Editor's Note: IAPP Legal Extern Kerri O'Malley, CIPP/US, breaks down HB 702 in this piece for Privacy Tracker.
