California Privacy Rights Act to Appear on November 2020 Ballot

If voters approve the initiative, the CPRA would significantly expand the CCPA, establish the California Privacy Protection Agency, remove the CCPA’s cure period, and impose a number of GDPR-styled obligations on businesses, among other requirements.

Both the regulations and the CPRA are subject to complicated administrative processes that could affect their adoption and implementation, as described in this post.
