The long-awaited amendments to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) have finally become law.  On October 11, 2019—two days before the October 13 deadline—California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that he signed all of the California Legislature’s September 2019 amendments to the CCPA: AB-25, AB-874, AB-1146, AB-1355, and AB-1564.  We previously summarized these amendments, which are now law, to be effective January 1, 2020.

The signing of the amendments follows the issuance for publication on October 11, 2019 of the California Attorney General’s proposed regulations for the CCPA.  Meetings are scheduled for discussion and comment on the proposed regulations.  A summary is to follow in another post.
