California's SB 1121 was termed a "technical corrections" bill aimed at fixing errors and clarifying the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018. Jim Halpert and Andrew Kingman write in this Privacy Tracker post, "In fact, SB 1121 is very short on technical corrections. It clarifies only a handful of the dozens of drafting ambiguities and errors in the CCPA." The authors write the principal effects of the bill are a six-month grace period for enforcement of the CCPA and expanded exemptions for data subject to certain federal privacy laws. In this post, they offer a breakdown of these changes, as well as changes to the private right of action, civil penalties, the attorney general's role, First Amendment exception, and more. Editor's Note: The IAPP will host a daylong workshop on the CCPA at Privacy. Security. Risk. in Austin, Texas.
