Arizona 4th Amendment Protection Act passes committee, full senate vote next

PHOENIX, February 24, 2014 – Today, a powerful Arizona state senate committee passed SB1156, the 4th Amendment Protection Act, by a vote of 4-2 with one member absent. The bill now moves on to a vote in the state senate, which is likely to be the first full legislative body in the country to vote on a bill designed to thwart surveillance programs from the National Security Agency (NSA).
