CCPA amendments are one step closer to becoming law. Friday, September 13 was the deadline for the California legislature to pass the proposed CCPA amendments before the Legislature adjourns. The bills that passed both houses on Friday will be submitted to California Governor Gavin Newsom, who will have until October 13 to sign the bills into law. The bills that didn’t make the vote can still become part of the CCPA eventually, but the law will likely not be amended ahead of its January 1, 2020 effective date.

More information can be found in our CCPA Amendment tracker.
