GPS Tracking Bills HR1312 and S 639

Bills have been introduced in both the US Senate and House of Representatives to restrict the use of Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) technology for tracking purposes.  HR 1312 and S 639 were introduced by Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) and Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR.)

The legislation would affect both government and private use of GPS technology. It requires law enforcement to obtain a warrant before obtaining location data and also requires that private entities obtain a person's consent.  Senator Wyden specifically states in his press release that it the legislation would make it illegal for an ex-husband to track his former wife's movements without permission.  He says this would parallel current law on wiretaps.

These two bills have bipartisan support.

Congress is now scheduled to be in recess for two weeks.  The NCISS "Hit the Hill" day will provide an opportunity to address concerns with these bills before they are considered by Congress.

I look forward to seeing everyone
