Proposition 24 includes provisions to triple the fines for companies that violate kids’ privacy and will create a dedicated state agency to enforce the law that was passed in 2018.

Proponents of the measure said it would strengthen California’s privacy law and help hold big business accountable.

Opponents argued that the 52-page initiative was too complicated for voters and that it was too soon to rewrite a law that just took effect.
