In July, Squire Patton Boggs partner Petrina H. McDaniel and associate Keshia Lipscomb outlined several of the pending amendments expected to impact the scope of the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) in an article with Bloomberg Law.  Shortly after, the California Senate Judiciary Committee held a nearly 12-hour hearing on Tuesday, July 9th just before the impending deadline for CCPA amendments to be heard before the CCPA’s January 1st effective date. 

With new guidance from the committee, Petrina and Keshia followed up with a second article summarizing key takeaways from the July 9th hearing and proposing guidelines for businesses to address the legal ramifications and compliance hurdles of the CCPA.  The California Senate has just reconvened from its summer recess and now has until September 13th to pass the remaining amendments through the Senate in time to become part of the CCPA before January 1, 2020.
