Rep. Neal Kurk, known as a crusader for privacy in the New Hampshire legislature, has requested a 2016 bill to limit “stingray” technology.

The New York Legislature is considering a law that would allow police to use so-called ‘Textalyzer’ technology which enables access to time and date stamps on calls, text messages, and other mobile use without accessing a user’s personal content. Law enforcement officials would be empowered to use the device on drivers’ phones after car accidents without a warrant.

A U.S. House committee voted down an amendment that would have limited employer access to GPS data from company cell phones.

The amendment, sponsored by Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, would have banned GPS tracking during non-work hours and "for purposes other than legitimate business purposes."  The amendment also required an employee's knowledge and consent for GPS tracking.
