The Internet Association, a Silicon Valley lobbying group representing tech companies, such as Facebook, Amazon and Google, announced it will not oppose the internet privacy bill making its way through California’s legislature, MediaPost reports. While the Internet Association disagrees with aspects of the bill, the group prefers it to the law proposed by real estate mogul Alastair Mactaggart, who said he will withdraw his initiative if the current privacy legislation passes and is signed by Thursday. "We oppose many problematic provisions contained within AB 375 and the unprecedented lack of debate or full legislative process," Internet Association Vice President of State Government Affairs Robert Callahan said. "The internet industry will not obstruct or block AB 375 from moving forward, because it prevents the even worse ballot initiative from becoming law in California." Editor's Note: At the time of Daily Dashboard's sending, AB 375 remained in committee and had not yet passed either of California's legislative bodies.
