Nevada has become the latest state to integrate the PCI specification into state law. Previously, Minnesota’s Plastic Card Security Act (PDF) had gotten the ball rolling by including part of the specification, but Nevada (PDF) has written the entire standard into its law.
Looks like a trend to me, and I won’t be surprised to see other states using the Nevada law as a basis for their own efforts into the area of fraud prevention.
If you’re doing credit card transactions and your not PCI compliant right now, I think that pretty soon you will be. We have a white paper (PDF) available on Payment Data Security which will help you in getting started in your PCI efforts
