What’s in store for CCPA?

Narrower definitions? Broader private right of action? Increased funding?

All were discussed at a hearing regarding the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) held at the California State Assembly in Sacramento, CA.

Supervising Deputy Attorney General on Consumer Protection Stacey Schesser indicated that her office would seek to expand the private right of action provision within the CCPA. Schesser also indicated to the lawmakers that the Attorney General will be asking for increased funding to help the office enforce the CCPA.

At the hearing, representatives from the California Chamber of Commerce, California Retailers Association, American Civil Liberties Union and independent academics and researchers, among others, voiced concerns about the CCPA, including the broad definitions of the terms “personal information”, and “consumer”.
