Colorado should enact a privacy law to hold tech companies accountable for consumer harms because the federal government isn’t likely to adopt a measure, the state’s attorney general, Phil Weiser (D), said in a Dec. 9 interview with Bloomberg Law.

“It’s likely we pass a privacy law” in Colorado in 2020 that would provide increased enforcement powers, Weiser said on the sidelines of the National Association of Attorneys General Capital Forum in Washington. States are taking steps “as we likely don’t see national action on the horizon,” he said.
