On Wednesday, California Assemblyman Jim Cooper submitted a bill that has remarkably similar language to the New York measure and would require that device manufacturers and operating system vendors such as Apple, Samsung, and Google be able to decrypt users’ devices. The law would apply to phones sold in California beginning Jan. 1, 2017.

Like the New York bill, Cooper’s measure would provide for a fine of $2,500 for each device that doesn’t comply
