California Politicians are Rushing to Gut Internet Privacy Law with Pro-Big Tech Amendments

The Infinite Brief
The right for Californians to control the private data that tech companies hold on them may be undermined today at a critical committee hearing in Sacramento.

Privacy advocates are warning that most of the proposals before the privacy committee are influenced by the very industry that the law was supposed to constrain: big tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Amazon.

In most cases, the amendments seek to add carefully worded exemptions to the law that would benefit business at the cost of consumer rights.
