Last week, the Utah House unanimously passed a bill that would require police to get a warrant before accessing data stored in the “cloud.” The proposed law would not only increase privacy protections in Utah; it would also hinder the federal surveillance state.

Rep. Craig Hall (R-West Valley City) filed House Bill 57 (HB57) on Dec. 28. The proposed law would prohibit law enforcement agencies from accessing electronic information or data transmitted to a “remote computing service” without a warrant based on probably cause in most situations. In effect, it would prohibit police from warrantlessly accessing information uploaded into the “cloud.”

On Feb. 22, the House passed HB67 by a 71-0 vote.
