In September, the Insights Association has addressed: another comprehensive state privacy bill, a new facial recognition law in Baltimore, expansion of the FTC’s privacy role, and some international consumer privacy concerns; our fix to California A.B. 1561 which awaits signature into law; new requirements for COVID-19 vaccination for federal contractors/subcontractors' employees; and the rising legislative and regulatory assault against non-compete agreements in employment contracts.
This month, the Insights Association is dealing with new state privacy and data security laws, funding for the census, how insights offices can approach reopening as the pandemic ends, and a variety of other policy concerns, while helping to advance a fix to California A.B. 2257 through the state legislature.
The insights industry scored important legislative victories in the last month for pharmaceutical MR in Pennsylvania, data security in Utah, and more COVID-19 small business loans and grants at the federal level and in California. At the same time, we’re staring down lots of problematic legislation, including a new comprehensive data privacy law in Virginia and a complex excise tax on data collection in New York. Meanwhile, advocacy continues on issues like: California A.B. 2257; worrisome legislation in Congress that would allow for the unionization of research subjects; limitations on coronavirus-related exposure liability; the census; and restrictions on exit polling.
The data security program requirements of the New York Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security Act (SHIELD Act) come into effect on March 21, 2020.
