California State Attorney General Xavier Becerra has announced proposed regulations to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and Gov. Gavin Newsom has also signed six amendments into the law.

The California Credit Union League and its legal team are reviewing these proposals and amendments to effectively address them on behalf of credit unions and their members across the state.

The attorney general’s proposed regulations are extensive, and a summary of the proposal will be available soon in PowerComment, with comments due by Dec. 6.

The League has also been working on “next steps” with the Privacy Coalition, a group led by the California Chamber of Commerce.

The League will be focused on clarity regarding:

  • Covered businesses.
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) exemptions.
  • Notice to consumers.
  • Timing and recordkeeping.
  • Methods for submitting requests to know and requests to delete.
  • Service providers.
  • Discriminatory practices.

In addition to written comments, there will be public hearings in Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Fresno to provide interested parties an opportunity to comment.

New CCPA Amendments
Newsom’s amendments include provisions regarding the following:

  • Employee personal information exemption.
  • Publicly available information exemption.
  • Technical corrections.
  • Vehicle information exemption.
  • Consumer requests for disclosure methods.
  • Data broker registration.

For now, you can view the "Notice of Proposed Rulemaking", as well as the "Text of Proposed Regulations".

A more detailed analysis of the proposed rule is forthcoming.
