Californians’ personal data is often collected and stored by the state to help state agencies serve the public, but the data has also been used to aid mass deportations and religious registries. SB 244 would enhance privacy and confidentiality protections in state databases to ensure that personal data is only used to assess eligibility for and to provide public services. It would also prohibit disclosure of personal data from the California Department of Motor Vehicles database except in cases of warranted requests.
