California Senate Passes Consumer Privacy Bills

The California Senate sent the Assembly a bill that would put into state law the current federal ban on unsolicited faxed advertisements commonly known as junk faxes. The Senate also approved a bill that would bar businesses from denying a consumer a product or service because the consumer refused to reveal personal information or allow the information to be disclosed by the business.
