"Now that Congress has killed internet privacy regulations due to take effect this year, a number of states are weighing their own measures to protect consumers' personal information…So far the state has been quiet on the internet-privacy front, but that will change soon, according to an aide to Assemblyman Ed Chau, a Democrat who heads the Privacy and Consumer Protection Committee."
Excerpted from the New York Times: "President Trump this month signed a resolution to undo internet privacy rules that would have kept companies like AT&T and Comcast from selling users’ browsing histories and other personal data. Almost immediately, a number of states — among them Washington, Connecticut and Massachusetts — moved to pass new rules that would in effect replicate those nullified by Congress. But California, a pioneer of privacy protections, has so far been silent. That could soon change."
“I applaud the decision by the Joint Legislative Audit Committee to move forward on the audit of Montebello Unified School District’s financial operations and help officials there to establish a road map to improve governance structures,” said Assemblymember Ed Chau (D-Monterey Park). “The situation that has unraveled in recent months and made headlines across the state, prompting frustrated residents to contact my office, is disheartening, especially when considering the impact of the District’s fiscal situation on students and its employees that are now subject to layoffs.
