  • Liability-Expanding Bill Fails In California Senate
May 20, 2019

According to Corporate Counsel, a bill that would have expanded liability under California’s new Consumer Privacy Act failed a procedural vote in the state’s Senate last week.

The bill would have expanded the private right of action under the law, eliminated language that requires the state’s attorney general to help companies learn how they can comply with the law and eliminated a 30-day “right-to-cure” period for violations. The director of the Internet Association’s California office said the law is“ stronger with unified, well-funded enforcement through the California Attorney General’s office.”
