Iowa is set to become the sixth state in the United States to adopt a comprehensive privacy law. Following California, Colorado, Connecticut, Utah and Virginia, Iowa’s privacy law will the latest law to be implemented. It was unanimously passed by the Iowa Senate and House and is now waiting on the Governor’s signature. If approved the law will go into effect on January 1 2025.
The law in itself doesn’t seem to have anything drastically new or different compared to its five predecessors. It seems to most closely resemble Utah’s Consumer Privacy Act.
Like other privacy laws the Iowa Attorney General would be exclusively responsible for enforcing the law. It’s likely there would be penalties of up to $7,500 per violation. However, it is expected there will be a 90-day cure period for companies to rectify the issues identified.
