A Consumer Data Protection Act is on the horizon for the U.S. state of Virginia with the Virginia General Assembly introducing and debating the privacy legislation to the edge of passage. 

Both the first and second readings of Senate Bill 1392 have been unanimously passed by the Virginia Senate with a third reading expected in February. If the law is enacted, then the governor could sign the bill into law by the end of February. 

Currently the bill applies to businesses that control or process data for at least 100,000 individuals situated in Virginia or to those that make 50% of their gross revenue from the sale, control or process of personal data to at least 25,000 consumers.
