A Los Angeles TV news reporter said a California bill to prohibit state cooperation with unconstitutional and illegal spying “could be huge.”
Known as the 4th Amendment Protection Act, SB828 passed the California Senate 29-0.
“It’s a bill that basically tells the federal government, ‘If you are going to spy on American cell phones without a warrant, California is not going to help you.’ And that could be huge considering the fact California’s population is about 38 million people,” NBC Los Angeles reporter Gadi Schwartz said.
