This bill is among the Senate Democratic Caucus’ priorities this legislatives session. Despite this unanimous committee vote, the bill is still a “work in progress” until it reaches a vote on the floor of the Senate, likely later this month.The bill seeks, among other things, to establish a framework around the development, deployment and use of certain AI systems that make consequential decisions to minimize the risk of algorithmic discrimination.
