Californians, are you ready to vote? Proposition 24 will be on the ballot.

Prop. 24 (the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020) will be on the California November 3, 2020 ballot. For those who are already familiar with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), Prop. 24 aims to amend the CCPA. It proposes to provide new consumer privacy rights, change existing penalties, and create a new agency to enforce and implement consumer data privacy laws. If the ballot measure passed by California voters, most of the proposition will be effective in January 2023. Some of them, such as the creation of the new agency, will be effective immediately.

A quick summary of Prop 24 taken from the proposition official website:

Prop. 24 receives supports and oppositions from a number of groups. A number of organizations discuss the pros and cons of Prop. 24 – these two we find particularly helpful: Link (Abine) and Link (Voter’s Edge).
