Travis Brennan, Chair of Stradling’s Privacy & Data Security practice, and Katie Beaudin, an associate in the firm’s Business Litigation practice, authored a client alert regarding recent amendments to the California Consumer Privacy Act.

In late May 2019, the California Assembly voted to approve several bills to amend the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which is scheduled to take effect on January 1, 2020. Two of those bills would meaningfully narrow or clarify the act’s scope if passed by the Senate and signed into law by the governor, so companies working on compliance roadmaps should continue to monitor their progress. Meanwhile, a Senate bill that would have expanded the already severe consequences for violating the act failed to pass that chamber. Read the full client alert below.
