Let's take a look at Proposition 24, which expands the privacy laws for your digital data.

Prop 24 lets you tell businesses to limit the use of sensitive data, such as your exact location, health information, race, and religion. It also creates a new state agency to enforce the law and assess penalties.

But opponents, including the ACLU, point out that California passed a consumer privacy law two years ago, and they claim Prop 24 actually hurts consumers. They say it delays a rule allowing you to find out what information your employer collects about you and lets tech companies grab your data when you leave California.

The driving force behind Prop 24 is a San Francisco real estate developer, who pushed for the 2018 privacy law and now says it needs more teeth.
