Consumer Data Protection Act; enforcement; Consumer Privacy Fund. Authorizes the Attorney General to pursue actual damages to consumers to the extent they exist if a controller or processor of the personal data of Virginians continues to violate the Consumer Data Protection Act following a 30-day cure period offered by the Attorney General or breaches an express written statement provided to the Attorney General. Political organizations are classified as nonprofit organizations and thus exempt from the Act. The bill specifies that the Attorney General may deem whether a cure under the provisions of the Act is possible for consumers. In addition, the bill abolishes the Consumer Privacy Fund and all civil penalties, expenses, and attorney fees collected from enforcement of the Act shall be deposited into the Regulatory, Consumer Advocacy, Litigation, and Enforcement Revolving Trust Fund.
