The Alaska bill that would permit warrantless arrests for misdemeanors that I mentioned previously on this blog has now made it out of committee.

Curiously, while Alaska’s legislature seems prepared to erode citizens’ protections in one area, it seems willing to consider protecting them in another area. Michael Carl writes on World Net Daily:

To those who want to take and collect people’s biometric identification, you know, retinal scans, fingerprints, palm scans and other identifiers, lawmakers in Alaska have an answer: No.

Alaska Senate Bill 98 has been introduced to make it illegal for companies to gather and maintain prints, scans or other private information without the prior, informed consent of the person.
