California, in its usual trend to be a first mover in regulating new technology, has had an information privacy connected devices bill in the works since Feb. 13, 2017. In March 2017, we identified the bill and privacy concerns the state and regulators may be considering when it comes to connected devices. Less than a year later, in January 2018, the bill moved from the state’s Senate to being considered in the state’s Assembly. It has been read once and is currently being “held at desk” in the Assembly, waiting to be referred to a committee. After being introduced, the bill was substantially transformed. We discuss the details here.
