To the Governor’s Desk: Two California Bills to Protect Privacy Against Warrantless Surveillance

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Sept. 8, 2015) – Today, the California Assembly gave final approval to a bill that would protect electronic privacy against warrantless intrusion, sending it to Gov. Brown’s desk for a signature. It works in conjunction with a 2nd bill passed last week to help end bulk spying by “stingrays.” If ultimately signed into law, these bills would not only help protect privacy in California, but would also hinder part of the federal surveillance state.
