Bills in the California legislature impact organizations' data practices and understanding of the laws, whether through direct amendments to the CCPA and/or the CPRA or proposed legislation related to the collection or sharing of personal information, including platform liability.

The information in the tracker is from the California Legislative Information website and each bill is hyperlinked to the specific bill information. It also includes a brief summary of the legislation, as well as its status and last legislative action.
