The Washington Privacy Act has passed through the state Senate, MediaPost reports. The bill cleared the Senate with a 46-1 vote. It now moves to the state’s House of Representatives. The previous iteration of the Washington Privacy Act stalled in the House last spring after it was approved by the Senate. The current version approved by the Senate did not include a private right of action. Editor's note: Faegre Baker Daniels Associate and former IAPP Westin Research Fellow Mitchell Noordyke, CIPP/E, CIPP/US, CIPM, compares the WaPA to the California Consumer Privacy Act in this piece for Privacy Tracker.
