 May 10, 2016  Laws, Surveillance

From the Tenth Amendment Center:

The Vermont legislature has passed a sweeping bill that would establish robust privacy protections in the state, If ultimately signed into law, it would not only limit warrantless surveillance and help ensure electronic privacy in Vermont, but would also hinder several federal surveillance programs that rely on cooperation and data from state and local law enforcement.

As passed, the legislation would ban the warrantless use of stingray devices to track the location of phones and sweep up electronic communications, restrict the use of drones for surveillance by police, and generally prohibit law enforcement officers from obtaining electronic data from service providers without a warrant or a judicially issued subpoena.

Read more on Tenth Amendment Center and hope the Governor signs this into law.
