Arthur Turner would “require any businesses with 10 or more employees to retain records of its sharing of information of an Illinois-based customer. A customer could request any instances of their data being sold or shared, even something as small as giving it to a shipper to send a product.” Others in the legislature think this bill would be an “invitation” for frivolous lawsuits as “many individuals will see this as a great opportunity to sue businesses to make a quick buck.” (Illinois News)
