With a vote on AB-375 (the “Privacy Bill”) in the California Legislature set for June 28, 2018, California is poised to enact sweeping privacy legislation, potentially averting a competing ballot initiative (the “Privacy Initiative”) that has qualified for the November 6, 2018 ballot.

This Stroock Special Bulletin summarizes the key aspects of both the Privacy Initiative and the Privacy Bill, as well as areas of overlap between these measures and the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).
