Oops. I missed this one in the week before Christmas. Janelle Irwin Taylor reported:

State Sen. Jeff Brandes has again filed a bill that would protect individuals’ privacy contained on cell phones and other electronic devices as well as GPS location data.

The bill would require a warrant to access electronic information from a person suspected of a crime. A warrant is not currently required to search such electronic data.

The bill (SB 210) covers cell phones and any other electronic devices that connect to the internet including home assistant devices like Amazon’s Alexa, which record audio in order to respond to commands.
