The California Consumer Privacy Act, which went into effect on Jan. 1, gave California residents the broadest rights in the nation to learn what data a business has about them, to request that the business delete that data and to demand that the business not sell their data.
The CCPA opened a national conversation about consumer privacy, and while the broad concept of federal privacy legislation appears to have bipartisan support in the U.S. Congress, the fact that such a law has not passed seems to have motivated other state legislatures to introduce their own consumer privacy laws.
