Associated Press reports on reactions to a bill in the Iowa legislature that would permit police to attach a GPS device to a car if a judge issues a warrant. The tracking could be conducted for 30 days.

When I saw AP’s headline, I expected to read that the bill didn’t require a warrant and was pleased to see that it does. Apparently, some legislators think 30 days is too long.

Okay, these are steps in the right direction: requiring a warrant and considering how long is too long.

Read more on The Chicago Tribune. The bill is HF 2037. Does the language sound clear enough to you?
