CA Privacy Regulators Begin Debating New Rules

The California Privacy Protection Agency voted 4-0 on June 8th to formally begin the rulemaking process for the impending California Privacy Regulation Act, which is set to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2023. Enforcement begins July 1, 2023. A 45-day public comment period will begin once the notice is posted with the California Regulatory Notice Register.

The draft rules the CPPA released in late May included 22 regulatory topics, including personal data collection and usage limits and rules for opt-out acknowledgment and privacy notice requirements.

MI Drivers Can Now Buy Digital License Plate

Michigan regulators approved the use of digital license plates in the Wolverine State. The plates, called RPlate, come with a smartphone app that allows motorists to switch the plate’s display between a light and dark mode, create a personalized banner message, receive alerts if the vehicle is moving, report the vehicle stolen, and renew their registration. Michigan is the third state, after California and Arizona, to authorize the digital plates. At least 10 more are in the process of following suit. (MLIVE.COM)
