A Montana bill that would limit the use of Automated License Plate Readers (ALPRs) in the state, and place significant roadblocks in the way of a federal program using states to help track the location of millions of everyday people through pictures of their license plates, passed an important House committee by a wide margin last week.

Rep. Daniel Zolnikov (R-Billings) sponsors House Bill 149 (HB149). The legislation would prohibit the use of ALPRs except for specified purposes, and would also place limitations on the retention and sharing of data gathered by license plate readers.

The House Judiciary Committee passed HB149 by a 16-3 vote last Tuesday.
