The Chamber held a joint Innovation & Technology and Government & Fiscal Affairs Council focused on the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), slated to go into effect January 2020, with the Chair of the Assembly Committee on Privacy and Consumer Privacy, Assemblymember Ed Chau. The Assemblymember presented on the history, components and upcoming regulations on the CCPA.
