When Do the New State Privacy Laws Go into Effect?

By Phillip Walters/ Published on October 18, 2022

As data privacy has become an important issue for voters across the political spectrum, state legislatures have taken notice and are passing new privacy laws at a quick pace. Five new laws will take effect in 2023 alone, and several other states have legislation in the works. Others are waiting to see whether Congress will act on its proposed federal privacy law before passing their own bills.

As the patchwork of state privacy legislation grows more complicated, it helps to know when these new laws actually go into effect. Here’s a quick rundown by state.


The California Privacy Rights Act (CCPA 2.0)
Takes effect on January 1, 2023


The Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act
Takes effect on January 1, 2023


The Colorado Privacy Act
Takes effect on July 1, 2023


The Connecticut Data Privacy Act
Takes effect on July 1, 2023


The Utah Consumer Privacy Act
Takes effect on December 31, 2023
