Florida on Tuesday became the 10th U.S. state to pass a comprehensive consumer data privacy law.

Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law SB 262, which is scheduled to take effect July 1, 2024. The law is the fifth to be approved among U.S. states within the past three months, joining Iowa, Indiana, Tennessee, and Montana.

Montana will join Florida with data privacy bills coming into force in 2024, while Iowa and Tennessee’s laws each take effect in 2025. Indiana’s protections will be effective at the start of 2026.
