Privacy regulation at the state level is fractured and inconsistent. While most state laws were in response to specific narrow issues (Illinois' (740 ILCS § 14/). Biometric Information Privacy Act.), some states, like California, are passing more comprehensive privacy laws. Each state passing their own, often inconsistent, laws introduce risks. The risks of consumer confusion over which laws apply to them. The risk individuals think they are protected but aren't because a law doesn't apply to them. Disparate state laws also drive up the compliance costs for organizations.

This Wiki uses the Solove Taxonomy as a means of classifying segments of state law. This can help identify gaps as well as provide a roadmap for companies trying to match their activities applicable laws.
