Coalition Letter Requesting Veto of SB 227 (Utah Consumer Privacy Act)

Consumer Reports, Access Now, Center for Digital Democracy, Common Sense, Consumer Federation of America, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Fight for the Future, National Consumers League, Ranking Digital Rights, and Voices for Utah Children urge a veto of SB 227. The bill to provide to Utah consumers the right to know the information companies have collected about them, the right to delete that information, and the right to stop the disclosure of certain information to third parties. However, in its current form it would do little to protect Utah consumers’ personal information, or to rein in major tech companies like Google and Facebook. The bill needs to be substantially improved before it is enacted; otherwise, it would risk locking in industry-friendly provisions that avoid actual reform.
