On June 14, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed into law HB 4390 to amend the state’s data breach notification law, and with that Texas joins a growing list of states passing privacy legislation in 2019. In addition to breach notification changes, HB 4390 creates an advisory council to study privacy laws across the U.S. and relevant foreign jurisdictions and to make recommendations to the legislature for future privacy legislation. The amendments to the state’s breach notification requirements go into force January 1, 2020, but Texans will have to wait until the next legislative session in 2021 at the earliest for another shot at comprehensive privacy legislation.
