CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2019–2020 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 2787


Introduced by Assembly Member Chau

February 20, 2020


An act relating to unmanned aircraft systems. An act to add Title 1.81.49 (commencing with Section 1798.99.90) to Part 4 of Division 3 of the Civil Code, relating to privacy.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2787, as amended, Chau. Unmanned aircraft systems: delivery services.
Existing state law, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, grants a consumer various rights with respect to personal information, as defined, that is collected or sold by a business, as defined.
This bill would authorize an unmanned aircraft system, as defined, that is used by a business to deliver consumer products to a person in this state to be used by a business to collect, use, and retain audio, geolocation, and visual information only when reasonably necessary and proportionate to achieve the delivery purposes for which the information was collected or processed. Except as provided, the bill would require the business to destroy that information upon completion or realization of those purposes. The bill would define terms for its purposes.

Existing federal law, the Federal Aviation Administration Modernization and Reform Act of 2012, provides for the integration of civil unmanned aircraft systems, commonly known as drones, into the national airspace system.

This bill would express the intent of the Legislature to enact subsequent legislation pertaining to unmanned aircraft system delivery services.
