I recently had the privilege of guest posting on Professor Eric Goldman‘s Technology & Marketing Law Blog regarding last week’s California Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on proposed amendments to the California Consumer Privacy Act. You can check out my post here.
Many organizations are committing considerable resources to preparing for compliance with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), a process that is complicated by the large number of pending proposed legislative amendments. We won’t rehash the history here. As you know, the Act has an effective date of January 1, 2020, and the Attorney General can enforce the Act on July 1, 2020 (or six months after issuing regulations). This post is meant to bring you up to speed on some of the key proposed amendments to the CCPA (there are many more not addressed here) and where they are in the California legislative process. This process is constantly in flux, so keep a close eye on the text and history of these bills (some of which are linked below).
