On Friday, October 11, 2019, California’s governor signed into law each of the six CCPA amendment bills passed by the legislature, bringing some finality and clarity to the scope of the CCPA (at least with respect to details which will not be affected by the attorney general’s regulations). In addition to signing into law A.B. 25, A.B. 874, AB 1146, A.B. 1202, A.B. 1355 and A.B. 1564, on which we previously reported in detail here, the governor signed into law A.B. 1130, which expands the definition of personal information under California’s data breach statute to include passports and biometric information.
The governor’s signing of these amendments comes on the heels of California’s attorney general releasing draft regulations along with details on a public comment period, which we detail here.
