The passage of CA’s Prop 24 has been getting a lot of press since the U.S. election because it significantly expands CCPA.
But three other important U.S. state laws were also passed in the last week.
1. Massachusetts’ Right to Repair Law: gives car owners and repair shops access to car data without going through the manufacturer.
2. Michigan’s Proposal 20-2: specifies that a search warrant will be required to access personal electronic data and communications.
3. Portland, Maine’s Ballot Question B: prevents the city and officials from using facial recognition on groups or members of the public.
