New Nevada Law Restricts How State Agencies Handle Personal Data

Nevada S.B. 302, which took full effect January 1, 2021, puts in place new privacy related requirements and standards for Nevada state agencies.  The law addresses how government agencies may collect, disseminate, and maintain records that contain personal information of Nevada residents.  The law also permits agencies to require electronic submission of documents that are recorded, filed, or otherwise submitted to a government agency after January 1, 2021, and that require personal information be included.  The agency is allowed to create a process where a person may apply and receive a waiver from the electronic submission requirement.
