ALBANY, N.Y. (May 12, 2017) – Last week, a New York Assembly committee passed an electronic data protection bill would ban the use “stingrays” to track the location of phones and sweep up electronic communications without a warrant, and end warrantless collection of cell phone data in most situations. Passage of the bill would not only protect privacy in New York, but would also hinder at least two aspects of the federal surveillance state.
