Today, in response to the California Attorney General’s rulemaking process to implement the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), the News Media Alliance submitted written comments with the Attorney General regarding the CCPA and its effect on news publishers. The CCPA, adopted on June 28, 2018, establishes new rights for consumers regarding the collection and sharing of their personal information, and will take effect January 1, 2020.
Statement of David Chavern, President & CEO, News Media Alliance:
“The news media industry supports the intent of the California privacy bill to provide transparency and control to consumers over their data. In these comments, we propose clarifications and interpretations that would reflect the intent to curb those behaviors while not affecting the ability to sustain quality journalism.”
David Chavern is former President & CEO of the News/Media Alliance. Chavern has 30 years of experience in executive strategic and operational roles. Prior to the Alliance, he completed a decade-long tenure at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
