In the eighteenth episode of our Legislating Data Privacy podcast series, we talk with California Assemblymember Buffy Wicks.

In 2022, Assemblymember Wicks was the primary author of the California Age-Appropriate Design Code Act (AB-2273), a first-in-the-nation law based on the United Kingdom’s Age-Appropriate Design Code. This year, seven other states are currently considering bills modeled off the California law. During this interview, Assemblymember Wicks discusses the background of drafting and negotiating the bill, the bill’s provisions, and her thoughts on children’s data privacy.
