Senate Passes Va. Bill Prohibiting Secret Tracking

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Senate has approved legislation making it illegal to secretly use an electronic device to track a person's movements.
 
The Senate voted 32-8 Tuesday to pass Del. Joe May's bill, which now goes back to the House of Delegates for agreement on a minor amendment. After that, the bill goes to the governor's desk.
 
This is the fourth consecutive year May, a Loudoun County Republican, has sponsored the legislation. The bill carves out exemptions for police, parents tracking their children, any legally authorized representative of an incapacitated adult, owners of fleet vehicles and private investigators who have an owner's permission to place a device on his car or other property.
