On June 7, 2023, Connecticut’s Governor signed Senate Bill (SB) 1103, which enacted regulations regarding artificial intelligence, automated decision-making, and personal data privacy. The law sets several requirements for state agencies’ development and use of automated systems for critical decisions, including the designation of an artificial intelligence officer under the Office of Policy and Management, who would be tasked with developing and adopting automated systems procedures for state agencies’ use.
Under the bill state contracting agencies will be prohibited from entering into a contract on or after July 1, 2023, unless the contract contains a provision requiring the business to comply with all applicable provisions of the state’s consumer data privacy law.
The bill expands exemptions from the consumer data privacy law to include any air carrier that is regulated under the Federal Aviation Act (FAA) and the Airline Deregulation Act.
Most of the bill’s provisions took effect on July 1, 2023.
