Proposed Washington Privacy Act Dead or in Mortal Danger
Time 1 Minute Read

The much-discussed Washington Privacy Act, Senate Bill 5376 (“SB 5376”), appears to have died after failing to receive a House vote by an April 17, 2019 deadline for action on non-budget policy bills. Though the bill could be revived before the regular session ends on April 28, 2019, Washington lawmakers expressed doubt.

SB 5376 was the subject of attention in part because legislators sought the input of technology companies, among other organizations, while drafting the bill. Two days ago, on April 16, 2019, six advocacy organizations—including the American Civil Liberties Union of Washington and the Electronic Frontier Foundation—released a joint statement opposing the Governor’s office/Senate draft of the bill.
