CCPA Status Report: Legislative Finish Line in Sight

September 3, 2019

There are only 10 days until the California Legislative session ends on September 13th. The time limit for action is even more limited; California has a Constitutional requirement (passed in 2017) that states that bills, and any amendments to them, must be published and distributed to the members of the legislature 72 hours before action can be taken on them. Therefore, all changes to the CCPA must be in place by September 10th. There is in fact a further restriction that can be waived but creates another limit. Unless waived, September 6th (just 3 days away) is the last day bills can be amended on the floor of the California Legislature. Therefore, in this very small window of time, we will know the immediate legislative status of any potential changes to the CCPA.

The final stage of the California Legislative process will conclude no later than October 13th, 2019. Once the California Legislative session ends on September 13th, the Governor has one month to either sign or veto legislation passed by the legislature.

We will keep you up to date as we rapidly head to the legislative finish line.
