- State Reps. Josh West, R-Okla., and Collin Walke, D-Okla., announced the filing of House Bill 2969, the Oklahoma Computer Data Privacy Act of 2022, ahead of the 2022 legislative session, which opens Feb. 7, 2022. The lawmakers plan to run their new comprehensive privacy bill alongside their 2021 bill, HB 1602, which stalled out in the Oklahoma Senate last session following passage from the House. West said HB 2969 was drafted to be "the most stringent data privacy law in the nation."
