A privacy bill was proposed in New York last month as the state senator who proposed the law looks for a cosponsor in the state Assembly, Wired reports. The New York Privacy Act bears similarities to the California Consumer Privacy Act; however, it includes a private right of action and would apply to companies of any size within the state. Despite a lack of a cosponsor, State Sen. Kevin Thomas, D-N.Y., said he is confident he has majority support in the Senate. Thomas hopes to pass the bill this summer. The New York State Senate Consumer Protection Committee will hold a hearing on the bill Tuesday. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
