California governor vetoes state email privacy bill

The EFF wrote to Brown last month, encouraging him to sign the bill into law. The bill is “a sensible [one] that updates the state’s electronic privacy laws to the realities of the 21st century,” the group wrote.

Fakhoury said privacy advocates have been optimistic that states will pass privacy-enhancing legislation where the federal government has tried to and failed, especially now that Congress is mired in the shutdown and debt-ceiling debates.

“Our hope has been to get states to jump in and fill the voids,” he said.
