Proposed CCPA would amend and strengthen existing State Privacy Laws


The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is presently the strongest privacy rights act in the United States. Though it was modelled after the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) , it lacks the full spectrum of consumer protections. A proposed amendment to the 2018 ballot initiative would add some of those protections if it passes in November. Dubbed the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), the new bill would expand the scope of sensitive personal information, add new safeguards for minors, and establish a new independent enforcement agency among other terms.
