Privacy legislation – at the Federal and State levels – continues to be considered and developed.  The U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation held a hearing last December addressing what Congress should consider when shaping a federal privacy law. In September this year, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra testified at a hearing of that same Committee regarding the need for a U.S. privacy law. In addition, at the state level, several bills with privacy implications were passed by the California Legislature although not all were signed into law. On June 25, 2020, Californians for Consumer Privacy announced the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (“CPRA”) officially qualified for California’s November 2020 ballot, California Proposition 24, known as the Consumer Personal Information Law and Agency Initiative.
