The Privacy And Consumer Protection Committee will hold a special hearing on Tuesday afternoon to discuss and vote on nine proposed amendments to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) – which was passed last year in the US state but has yet to come into force. Right now, the legislation is undergoing tweaks at the committee stage.[theregister.co.uk...]
Privacy advocates are warning that most of the proposals before the privacy committee are influenced by the very industry that the law was supposed to constrain: big tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Amazon.
The worst proposed change is currently in the California Senate where state senate bill 753 would effectively exempt Google and Facebook's entire business models.
