A number of legislative proposals seeking to amend the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) are moving forward following an April 23 hearing before the California Assembly's Committee on Privacy and Consumer Protection in which the bills were approved. The bills will now advance to the Assembly's Appropriations Committee before being voted on by the full Assembly and potentially advancing to the California Senate for consideration.
Also of note, AB 1760, the CCPA amendments bill from Assemblymember Buffy Wicks that proposed to significantly change the law's provisions, including to require affirmative opt-in consent to share personal information, was withdrawn from consideration by the Committee and has been confirmed by the sponsor's office as "dead for the year."
Finally, AB 1138, a bill introduced by Assemblymember James Gallagher to amend California's Parent's Accountability and Child Protection Act (entering into force on January 1, 2020 to prohibit the creation of social media accounts by minors under 16 years of age without parental consent) by clarifying the law's definition of "social media" and setting a January 1, 2021 deadline for Department of Justice guidelines on parental consent.
The Senate Judiciary Committee was also scheduled in its April 23 hearing to consider SB 753, an amendment to exempt certain data sharing related to targeted advertising from CCPA "do not sell" compliance requirements. However, as the hearing extended into the late evening hours without reaching SB 753, sponsor Senator Henry Stern pulled the bill from the hearing's remaining agenda.
