California: Attorney General Opens Consumer Privacy Act for Public Comment

On October 11, 2019, Californian attorney general Xavier Becerra released proposed regulations under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), providing consumers with new rights on the use of their personal information. The CCPA was introduced as Assembly Bill 357 and signed into law on June 28, 2018.

The CCPA creates a mandate for the Office of the Attorney General to promulgate and adopt implementing regulations for the CCPA. As such, the Attorney General’s Office is opening for public comment the proposed regulations, which will include four public hearings in Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Fresno.
