FRANKFORT – The Senate approved a cyber-security bill Friday that would require most state and local government agencies to notify citizens of any electronic breaches of personal information within 35 days.
House Bill 5 now goes back to the House to consider the Senate’s version of the legislation.
The measure is being pushed in this year’s legislative session by Auditor Adam Edelen. He complained earlier this month that the Senate was not acting quickly on it.
“The process wasn’t pretty, but bipartisan agreement was reached on one of the top public protection issues of the digital age,” Edelen said Friday in a release.
