The U.S. DOJ today extended an invitation to California to attend the meeting with state attorneys general, which will be held on September 25.

“US DOJ has responded to our request that states with interests involving the future and oversight of social media platforms be included in any discussion of this subject,” said Attorney General Becerra. “U.S. DOJ has extended an invitation to California to participate in its planned September 25 meeting with state attorneys general, and we’re told other states will be invited, too.
