CALIFORNIA – Proposition 24 was written to close some loopholes in a 2018 consumer data privacy law.

It would allow you to limit data used by businesses, such as exact location, race, or religion. It would limit how long businesses can hold onto your data.

Prop 24 would subject businesses to 75-hundred dollar fines for violating children's privacy rights. And it would create a new state agency to oversee all this.

But it is a complex law, 52 pages long, that is finding both support and opposition from consumer rights groups.

Proponents say Prop 24 would give the existing privacy law the enforcement strength it lacks. They also say it will make it harder for lobbyists to change privacy laws.

Opponents of Prop 24 say the new data privacy law just went into effect this year and we should give it more time.

So, a “Yes” vote on Prop 24 means you want to overhaul the new law. A “No” vote means, don't change anything.

It's been another hot and smoky day for the valley of northern California, with showers and thunderstorms once again popping up over our mountains. It will quiet down tonight with more hot, active weather tomorrow.
