The Latest on the California Consumer Privacy Act’s Amendments

June 10, 2019

The sweeping California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) was enacted last June at light speed—having been resurrected from the inactive file and approved by then Governor Jerry Brown within a week. The CCPA was passed with the understanding that it would go through an extensive amendment process before it goes into effect on January 1, 2020.

That process reached a major milestone on May 31, the California State Legislature’s “house of origin” deadline. The house of origin deadline is the date by which any bill introduced in this legislative session must pass the house of the legislature it was introduced in. If the bill has not passed the house it was introduced in by this date it cannot be considered for the remainder of the legislative term, which ends on September 13.

While we won’t know what the final version of the CCPA will look like until after the still-pending amendments are resolved, we know which amendments are still in play and which will not make it into the CCPA when it goes into effect in 2020.
