Bill Summary

The act alters the name, membership, and issues of study of the task force for the consideration of facial recognition services to establish the artificial intelligence impact task force (task force). The membership of the task force includes 26 members who, on or before August 1, 2024, will be appointed by the governor, the president of the senate, the minority leader of the senate, the speaker of the house of representatives, and the minority leader of the house of representatives. Members include individuals that represent various organizations, communities, governmental entities, academia, and businesses related to the artificial intelligence and biometric technology industry. There are 4 legislative members of the task force.

The issues of study for the task force are updated to include a broad approach to artificial intelligence technology, automated decision systems, and biometric technology. The task force shall consider issues related to:

  • The definition of key terms, such as "artificial intelligence system" and "automated decision system" and types of artificial intelligence systems or automated decision systems that any state legislation or policy should cover;
  • Establishing notice and disclosure requirements for companies that use artificial intelligence systems and automated decision systems;
  • Creating a code of conduct or best practices for evaluating the ethical and equitable impact of using artificial intelligence systems and automated decision systems;
  • Developing recommendations for how to protect disproportionately impacted communities and workers from algorithmic discrimination, including clear quantitative metrics by which to measure, assess, monitor, and prevent algorithmic discrimination;
  • Developing recommendations for how the state can effectively govern artificial intelligence systems and automated decision systems; and
  • Developing recommendations related to the use of facial recognition services and biometric technology.

On or before February 1, 2025, the task force must submit a report to the joint technology committee and the governor's office that summarizes the findings and policy recommendations related to the task force's issues of study. The task force must meet at least 5 times between September 1, 2024, and February 1, 2025, and may meet as necessary after the task force submits the report. The task force is repealed September 1, 2027, and the task force is scheduled for sunset review prior to repeal.
