House Bill 1155 – the My Health, My Data Act has passed the legislature and is headed to the Governor’s Office for consideration. Governor Inslee has until May 16 to take action and has indicated he intends to sign it into law.
WR continues to have significant concerns with the implementation inconsistencies and timeline for compliance.
WR and members are working with the Attorney General’s office seeking “guidance” on implementation and compliance. In addition, WR will present its letter to the Governor outlining the discrepancies on the implementation dates and signing a broader letter from several industry associations.
HB 1155 has both state and national ramifications as the first privacy bill allowing a private right of action and Attorney General enforcement.
