Consumer Reports submitted comments to the Vermont Attorney General on potential 2022 privacy legislation. CR urged the AG to consider our model state privacy legislation when pursuing a privacy bill. This model law uses the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) as a baseline, and provides additional protections to ensure that consumers’ privacy rights are respected by default. It reflects our position that privacy laws should set strong limits on the data that companies can collect and share so that consumers can use online services or apps safely without having to take any action, such as opting in or opting out.
