Statement on the Enactment of California Privacy Legislation

Sacramento, CA — Internet Association Vice President of State Government Affairs Robert Callahan issued the following statement on the passage of AB 375 in California:

“Maintaining people’s privacy and security has always been and remains a top priority of internet platforms. Trust with IA member products and services is essential to a thriving internet, and the internet industry is committed to providing people with information and tools to make informed choices about how their personal information is used, seen, and shared online.

“Data regulation policy is complex and impacts every sector of the economy, including the internet industry. That makes the lack of public discussion and process surrounding this far-reaching bill even more concerning. The circumstances of this bill are specific to California. It is critical going forward that policymakers work to correct the inevitable, negative policy and compliance ramifications this last-minute deal will create for California’s consumers and businesses alike.”
