The California Privacy Rights Act is progressing through California’s elections process for inclusion on the November 2020 ballot. Businesses may want to begin considering how their data privacy obligations in California may change if voters enact CPRA. The CPRA would significantly amend the CCPA. Included in this blog post is a summary of key additions and modifications to the CCPA’s existing obligations.
Businesses spent the latter months of 2019 working hard to prepare for the January 1, 2020 implementation of the California Consumer Privacy Act. Months later, those businesses still are uncertain of their full range of potential compliance obligations because the California Attorney General’s CCPA implementing regulations are still not final. As businesses refine their CCPA compliance programs, they should also be aware that privacy rules in California could again change before the end of this year if the California Privacy Rights Act ballot initiative is approved by voters. Both the regulations and the CPRA are subject to complicated administrative processes that could affect their adoption and implementation, as described in this post.
