Rep. Jefferson Moss (R)


HB 491 (Raising the Privacy Bar for Government Entities)

Libertas Institute supports this bill.

HB 491 creates a Privacy Ombudsman, elevates the Personal Privacy Oversight Committee (renaming it the Utah Privacy Commission), brings teeth with a Utah Privacy Governing Board that includes important elected officials, and moves government entities to not only comply with the laws that already exist, but raise the standards by 2027.

Libertas Institute supports this bill. Privacy and data in our new economy do not have to be mutually exclusive. By getting the guardrails in place and right early on, we will be prepared when far more sensitive data becomes available as we move into a world more connected to biometric information.
