Matt Murphy reports that the Wyoming Senate voted Tuesday to postpone – indefinitely -Senate File 20, a student data privacy bill.

On Wednesday, the Senate Education Committee voted 4-1 to send the bill to the full body, which ended up postponing the law indefinitely.

So why has this been postponed indefinitely? It sounds like this bill has been weakened in light of past failures to enact it and yet it still can’t pass?

Student privacy rights can not wait “indefinitely” to be recognized and enforced. And let’s not rationalize trampling student privacy in the name of “safety.”

Let’s get it together, Wyoming, okay?
