New Hampshire Bills Would Prohibit Warrantless Stingray Spying, Hinder Federal Surveillance Program

CONCORD, N.H. (Jan. 15, 2017) – Two bills introduced in the New Hampshire House would ban the use of “stingrays” to track the location of phones and sweep up electronic communications without a warrant in most situations. The proposed laws would not only protect privacy in New Hampshire, but would also hinder one aspect of the federal surveillance state.
