Indiana to Pass Comprehensive Privacy Legislation
Indiana Senate Bill 5, a Virginia-style comprehensive privacy bill, was unanimously passed by the State’s House and Senate. If signed by the Governor, the law will go into effect January 1, 2026.
Indiana will be the seventh state to pass comprehensive privacy legislation, joining California and Virginia (already in effect), Colorado and Connecticut (effective July 1, 2023), Utah (effective December 31, 2023) and Iowa (effective January 1, 2025).

Tennessee joins Texas, Kentucky, Hawaii, Oklahoma and Montana with comprehensive privacy legislation passed through one chamber in 2023.
