NH lawmakers to hear bill on police warrants for cell data
The Associated Press
CONCORD (AP) - Senators are set to take testimony on a bill that would prohibit the police from obtaining location data off a cell phone without a warrant.
The bill, which already passed the House, is up for a public hearing Tuesday. The measure would also prohibit police or government entities from placing an electronic location device on a person or piece of property without a warrant. The bill lists several exceptions, such as in cases of responding to calls for emergency services or in cases of missing children.
Another bill up for a hearing would prohibit accountants who do work for licensed marijuana dispensaries from being arrested or prosecuted. Lawmakers will also take testimony on a bill to clarify the state law that says convicted felons cannot run for political office.
