The top lawmaker in the California legislature overseeing privacy legislation wants to do more to protect children online and also guard against the harms of artificial intelligence.

Assemblymember Rebecca Bauer-Kahan (D), the new chair of the state Assembly Privacy and Consumer Protection Committee, said in an interview that she wants to continue the legislature’s history of being at the forefront of online safety for children. She also intends to play a significant role over AI legislation because any artificial intelligence bills will likely have to pass through her panel.
