ND Legislature passes bill to study internet data privacy

March 20, 2019

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Legislature has passed a bill that will study personal internet data issues.

Senators endorsed the House legislation 43-2 on Wednesday.

Fargo Republican Rep. Jim Kasper introduced the bill that originally was to give residents more power over their personal internet data.

Kasper’s original bill sought to allow North Dakotans to be able to ask companies what personal data has been collected and how it has been shared. It also would have allowed residents to demand the data be deleted and not collected in the future.

The bill was amended to study the issue first.
