Two California Bills on The Move
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.September 1, 2010
Two bills designed to protect Californians' data are on the move. The California Legislature last week passed SB1166, a law that strengthens the notification requirements for data breaches, SC Magazine reports. The bill now moves to the governor's desk. And yesterday, the state assembly passed a bill designed to protect the privacy of motorists who use automated toll payment systems. SB1268 would prohibit the selling or sharing of motorists' data collected by transportation agencies, reports The Mercury News. It would also require agencies to destroy data that could be linked to specific drivers, the report states. That bill now moves to the senate.
