Four More CCPA Amendment Assembly Floor Votes Last Week!
The California State Assembly passed three California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) amendments last week in floor votes, plus another privacy bill that will regulate the opening of social media accounts by children. The privacy bills that passed were AB-873, AB-981, AB-1138 and AB-1146. These four privacy bills will join three CCPA amendments that passed earlier in May: AB-874, AB-1355 and AB-1564.
There is a May 31st deadline for floor votes and we are awaiting news on AB-25 and AB-846. If they are not passed, they would probably only be considered dead for now as the Senate could theoretically amend one of the existing CCPA bills to include their changes before it is brought to a floor vote.
Here is a quick breakdown on what has passed and what is still awaiting floor votes:
AB-873 (de-identified information) – Passed 73-0-7 on May 22nd.
AB-981 (insurance exemption & IIPPA) – Passed 77-0-3 on May 22nd.
AB-1138 (kids social media registration) – Passed 56-6-18 on May 23rd after failing in its first Assembly vote (24-11-45).
AB-1146 (vehicle warranty exception) – Passed 77-0-3 on May 23rd.
