California legislature publishes CaCPA amendments; vote scheduled for this week

 In NEWS, Uncategorized

Last week California legislative leaders published their agreed technical amendments to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018. The amendments in the form of Senate Bill 1121 followed almost two months of intense lobbying by leading industry and consumer groups alike. The published revisions include 45 amendments. Many changes simply correct drafting errors such as incorrect cross-references and the like. While groups debate the need for amendments to fine-tune the CaCPA, another level of objections to the law are also being levied in Washington. Last week a number of filings at the Federal Trade Commission complained that enactment of one or more state laws like CaCPA would result in a patchwork approach to privacy policy in the U.S. That debate will undoubtedly escalate in coming months.
