Mike Maharrey reports:

 A bill introduced in the New York Assembly would ban geolocation tracking and geofencing warrants. Passage of the legislation would not only protect privacy in New York; it would also hinder the growth of the federal surveillance state.

Asm. Dan Quart (D-Manhatten) introduced Assembly Bill 10246 (A10246) on April 8.

The proposed law also creates a process to suppress any evidence gathered in violation of the law.
