Consumers Reports writes to respectfully oppose requests to extend the California Privacy Protection Agency’s (“CPPA” or “Agency”) statutory deadline to adopt privacy regulations pursuant to Proposition 24, the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA). California voters approved CPRA in November 2020 to strengthen the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), a first-in-the-nation privacy law that gives consumers the right of access, delete, and stop the sale of their personal information, consistent with their right to privacy under the California Constitution. Several business groups have asked for legislative amendments to push back the regulatory deadline from July 1, 2022, to January 1, 2023, and to delay the enforcement date from July 1, 2023, to January 1, 2024. But to delay implementation and enforcement would inappropriately deny consumers key privacy protections to which they are entitled.
