WHAT WILL IT DO?

Expand the states privacy laws for consumers, increase penalties for companies that violate consumers’ privacy, and establish an independent agency to enforce these laws.

HISTORY:

In 2018 the California Consumer Privacy Act was passed which gives California consumers the right to learn what information a business collects about them, to delete their personal information, to stop the sale or use of personal information for advertising, and hold businesses accountable if they don’t protect their personal information. At the time, this was the only comprehensive consumer privacy law in the country

ARGUMENTS FOR:

This measure will update the existing laws and better protect consumers privacy as technology continues to evolve. Corporations are using consumer data in new ways and this law will help keep consumers aware of when and how their data will be used. Polls have shown that Californian’s want more control over their information. Privacy laws should be enhanced continuously to keep up with the modern climate.

ARGUMENTS AGAINST:

Establishing a new agency with no additional guaranteed funding beyond $5 million a year means the agency will rely heavily on the fines collected by violating agencies. With no substantial budget, the agency would be “outgunned” by large corporations with huge pockets to fight legal defenses. There are also increased opportunities for loopholes companies can use to abuse the data the collect. The Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 has not yet been in effect long enough to back up these changes with hard data.
