Summary of Q3 2022 legislation relating to ID scanning or identity verification

The 2022 legislative sessions have ended in all but a handful of states.

 A Michigan bill that would create the Michigan Personal Data Privacy Act was introduced. This legislation is similar to the privacy laws passed in California, Virginia, Colorado, Utah, and recently in Connecticut. However, if the Section 7(1)(a) opt-in mandate for the processing of all personal data is intentional (as opposed to requiring opt in only for sensitive personal data), the Act would represent a significant deviation from the other legislation. The Michigan Legislature remains in session through the end of the year.

In Maryland, a bill was signed into law that requires a business that maintains personal information of an individual residing in the State to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices. The law went into effect on October 1, 2022. 

On September 15, 2022, Governor Newsom signed the California Age-Appropriate Design Code Act. a law directed at businesses that provide online services, products, or features that are likely to be accessed by children under eighteen. The Act aims to hold children’s well-being over businesses’ commercial interests and implement robust privacy protections in light of children’s increased interactions online. It will work in conjunction with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the “CCPA”), as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (the “CPRA”), to govern the privacy of California residents. The Act will take effect on July 1, 2024.
