Attorney General Becerra Seeks Public Comment at Four Public Hearings on the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) Proposed Regulations
Interested parties may also submit written comments by Dec. 6, 2019 at 5 p.m. PST
SACRAMENTO — California Attorney General Xavier Becerra today issued an advisory reminding the public that the California Department of Justice will hold four public hearings on the proposed regulations issued under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The CCPA was introduced as Assembly Bill 375 and signed into law on June 28, 2018. The law provides consumers with groundbreaking new rights related to the use of their personal information. The law mandates that on or before July 1, 2020, the Office of the Attorney General promulgate and adopt implementing regulations for the CCPA. The proposed regulations were released to the public on Oct. 10, 2019. The comment period regarding these proposed regulations is underway and ends next week. Any interested party or their duly authorized representative may submit comments regarding the proposed CCPA regulations in person at the public hearings, or in writing by mail or email.
“Our personal data powers today’s economy and the wealth it generates. It’s time we had control over how it’s being used. That includes the ability to keep it private,” said Attorney General Becerra. “Our proposed regulations help move the California Consumer Privacy Act forward, but this isn’t the end of the story. We ask all Californians to participate in the process by submitting written comments or attending one of the four public hearings being held across the state. Your thoughts are a vital part of this process. When it comes to our privacy, we all have something at stake, and each of us should have a voice.”
Comments may be submitted to the Office of the Attorney General on or before 5 p.m. PST on Dec. 6, 2019. All comments received by the deadline will be posted on the Attorney General’s Office website and are subject to disclosure under the Public Records Act.
