Huffman Part Of Legislative Workgroup Offering Digital Use Guidelines

Several proposed legislative concepts aimed at balancing the needs of law enforcement to use citizens digital data for emergencies while protecting due process and privacy were the subject of a recent committee hearing in the Oregon Legislature.  59th District State Representative John Huffman has been a part of a bipartisan workgroup including an American Civil Liberties Union representative working on proposals for the 2015 Legislature.  The workgroup was formed to develop a bill passed last year to restrict the ability of government agencies to use drones, and Huffman says they have moved on to other technologies.  Potential bills discussed involved guidelines for use of automatic license plate readers and cell phone location data, smartphone and digital activity privacy, and creating a government surveillance oversight committee.
