California: CPPA votes to support four privacy bills

The California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA) announced, on July 19, 2023, that the CPPA Board had unanimously voted, on July 14, 2023, to support four California privacy bills during their recent Board meeting, as the bills, in their current form, support the CPPA's mission of protecting the privacy rights of Californians. In particular, the four bills are:

  • Assembly Bill 947 on the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA), as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (CPRA) (collectively, CCPA as amended), which would define sensitive personal information for purposes of the CCPA as amended to include personal information that reveals a consumer's citizenship or immigration status;
  • Assembly Bill 1194 on exemptions for abortion services under the CCPA as amended;
  • Assembly Bill 1546 on the CCPA statute of limitations; and
  • Senate Bill 362, which would transfer the administration and rulemaking authority over the data broker registry from the Department of Justice to the CPPA, and would direct the CPPA to establish an accessible deletion mechanism to allow a consumer to, in a single request, ask that all data brokers delete their personal information.

In addition, the CPPA outlined that the CPPA Board voted to support Senate Bill (SB) 544, in its proposed amended form. In particular, the CPPA explained that SB 544, as proposed to be amended, would make permanent an exemption allowing state bodies to conduct some of their meetings via teleconference.
