A ballot initiative proposed Friday would allow California consumers to know what personal information businesses are collecting from them, what they do with it — and to who they are selling it.

Backers of the initiative, dubbed the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, are aiming for a spot on the November 2018 statewide ballot. The measure would establish a consumer's right to request that a business disclose what categories of personal data it gathers, and to say no to the sale of any of that information without fear of losing services or facing discrimination.

It would require businesses to make those disclosures free of charge within 30 days.

Robin Swanson, a general consultant for the measure, says it would "give Californians more control over what personal information is shared."

The proposed ballot initiative, led by Mary Ross, president of Californians for Consumer Privacy, comes several months after President Trump signed into law a repeal of privacy regulations limiting what broadband providers can do with customer data.

This is great.. and it would create a massive problem for Facebook. 

One thing though.. although Trump did repeal a privacy regulations.. that is not quite what it seems.  The existing regulations were unfair.  The existing regulations restricted everybody with a few exceptions - most notably FACEBOOK.  Those regulations were crap, so Trump nuked them.   Now, because the dysfunctional restrictions are gone...   NEW restrictions can be made that INCLUDE Facebook!   

Restrictions that don't include Facebook are meaningless.. which is why Trump nuked them.   He won't nuke the restrictions that include the fake news propagators.
