SGIA has joined an industry coalition that has submitted a letter dated March 18, 2019 in opposition to the bill. The letter points out the incorrect statement of environmental and health impacts and raises a concern regarding privacy issues such as the collection of email addresses, which is a significant concern due to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The bill, if enacted, would also increase the costs of anyone issuing a receipt as they would now have to provide it electronically and they would have to ensure the privacy of the collected data from the customer is protected.
