As we have previously blogged, the California Consumer Protection Act (“CCPA“) will impose significant new obligations on how businesses handle California State residents’ personal information. Although the CCPA is scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2020, California lawmakers are still working on amendments, implementing regulations, and clarifying CCPA exceptions. Shortly before the close of the California legislative session on September 13, 2019, several amendments were passed and sent to the Governor for signature. One of the amendments being considered by the Governor, AB 874, would modify the definition of personal information by expanding the CCPA exception for publicly available information.
How Does AB 874 Amend the CCPA?
