HB 17: Cell Phone Tracking

Virginia House Bill #17 will, if enacted, require a warrant for using cell phones to track people:

It would even make attempting to track a cell phone user without a warrant a crime.

The position of this web site is that HB 17 is long overdue, and if there's any debate about it, the debate should be whether HB 17 goes far enough. Thank you, Delegate Marshall.
