SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (March 27, 2015) –  A bipartisan bill in the Illinois House that would put strict limitations on the use of Automated License Plate Readers (ALPRs) by law enforcement in the state, and would place significant roadblocks in the way of a federal program using states to help track the location of millions of everyday people through pictures of their license plates, unanimously passed out of committee Wednesday.
