Governor Signs Amendments to California Consumer Privacy Act
Governor Newsom signed four overlapping amendments to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) at the constitutional deadline on October 13, 2019. While the amendments contain a crosshatch of technical fixes mixed in with major substantive changes, the bill of greatest import was AB 25 which adds two major exemptions to the CCPA.

DBO Issues Cannabis Banking Guidance
On October 3, 2019, the California Department of Business Oversight (DBO) issued guidance to state-chartered financial institutions to help them navigate the risks associated with banking cannabis-related businesses (DBO Cannabis Guidance). According to the DBO’s press release announcing the guidance, the agency expects that it will serve as an additional resource for financial institutions as more and more of them begin to accept cannabis-related businesses as customers.

Banking Agencies Increased Major Assets Prohibition Thresholds for Management Interlocks
Last month, the banking agencies issued a final rule that increased the thresholds in the major assets prohibition for management interlocks for purposes of the Depository Institutions Management Interlocks Act (Interlocks Act). The Interlocks Act prohibits a director, officer or branch manager (“management officials”) of a bank, thrift or credit union from contemporaneously serving in a management capacity of a competing financial institution.

NCUA Amends Supervisory Committee Audits and Verifications
Credit unions are required to obtain an annual supervisory committee audit at least once every calendar year covering the period since the last audit. 12 CFR Part 715.
