A new statewide poll shows that 76% of Illinois voters oppose increased data collection on consumers and business. SB1502 and HB 3449 would require Illinois businesses to create massive troves of personal data for any transaction or interaction online. This would expose Illinois consumers to heightened risk of identity theft, and come at massive cost to small businesses.
The survey of 613 likely voters show that of those who had an opinion:
• 77% do not support a law that would prevent them from using anonymous accounts for email and apps.
• 77% would not support an increase of data privacy regulations if these new polices were created by a special interest group that would profit directly from lawsuits.
“The ‘Right to Know’ bill sounds good in theory – but once Illinois voters know what’s actually in it, they are clearly against the provisions,” said Todd Maisch, President and CEO, Illinois Chamber of Commerce. “Forcing businesses into collecting more data for longer about their customers and exposing residents’ private browsing is a step backward for our state.”
The Choice is Clear – Vote NO on SB1502 and HB3449.
