KUOW: Period tracking apps would have to follow new WA health privacy laws if this bill passes
Some lawmakers in Washington state want to change that, and have introduced a bill around how consumer data is shared.
Democratic Rep. Vandana Slatter represents Washington’s 48th legislative district, which covers much of the Eastside, including Redmond, Bellevue, and Kirkland. She is sponsoring HB 1155, which addresses the collection, sharing, and selling of consumer health data.
“Someone can actually track you, and target you, in some way that can be really harmful,” Slatter said.
