State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Calif., is still fighting for a more stringent California Consumer Privacy Act despite having her proposed bill killed, The New York Times reports. Jackson said her proposal of adding a private right of action to the CCPA would have "put some real teeth into the enforcement mechanism" and stood by the notion that such a clause would not put a burden on the court system or come with added costs. When it comes to the bills still in play regarding CCPA reform, Jackson doesn't want to see the power of the legislation downgraded. She said bills with "efforts to undermine" or "give exclusions and exemptions" can't be tolerated or considered, adding that she and her colleagues will be "playing a little defense" to avoid a bill "so weak it's essentially nothing."
