State-level momentum for comprehensive privacy bills is at an all-time high. The IAPP Westin Research Center actively tracks the proposed and enacted comprehensive privacy bills from across the U.S. to help our members stay informed of the changing state privacy landscape. This information is compiled into a map, a detailed chart identifying key provisions in the legislation, and links to enacted state comprehensive privacy laws.

Although many of the proposed bills will fail to become law, comparing the key provisions helps break down how privacy is developing in the U.S. The chart identifies fourteen provisions that commonly appear in comprehensive privacy laws. If a bill includes a provision, an "X" is placed in the corresponding column. The provisions are broken into two categories — consumer rights and business obligations — and are described more fully in the chart.

The Westin Research Center periodically updates this table, and previous versions are available for 2018-19, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023. If you are aware of a comprehensive bill absent from the tracker, please share it with us at research@iapp.org.

Please note: This tracker only includes bills intended to be comprehensive approaches to governing the use of personal information. If a bill does not appear on the tracker, it does not qualify due to its scope, coverage, or rights. Industry-specific, information-specific and narrowly scoped bills, e.g., data security bills, are not included. For more information on which bills the IAPP includes in the tracker, please see "Defining 'comprehensive': Florida, Washington and the scope of state tracking."
