Purvi Patel and Mary Race published a Practical Law Expert Q&A about California’s recent passage of Proposition 24, an initiative on the November 3, 2020 ballot to enact the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (CPRA).

The California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (CPRA) is a law that amends the recently-enacted California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA). Like the CCPA, the CPRA protects the privacy rights and interests of consumers, which it defines as all California residents. Broadly speaking, the CPRA expands the scope and applicability of the CCPA while introducing new privacy protections that extend above and beyond those included in the CCPA and its implementing regulations. The CPRA also establishes a new enforcement body, the California Privacy Protection Agency, and requires additional rulemaking on a number of issues. The CPRA’s substantive obligations imposed on businesses become operative on January 1, 2023, and enforcement can begin on July 1, 2023.
