Shawnee legislator files Fourth Amendment Protection Act
Topeka State Rep. Brett Hildabrand, R-Shawnee, has filed a bill that he says is aimed at preventing the government from obtaining personal electronic data without a warrant.
House Bill 2421, called The Kansas Fourth Amendment Preservation and Protection Act, has been pre-filed for the legislative session, which starts Jan. 13.
"The bill would prevent state/local agencies in Kansas from searching or obtaining personal electronic data such as cell phone content, email, and non-public social media info without a warrant," Hildabrand said.
