OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union is teaming up with a Republican House legislator to push three privacy rights bills, including one that limits the ability of law enforcement to use drones for surveillance without a warrant.
Republican Rep. Paul Wesselhoft of Moore said Tuesday another of his bills would prohibit the installation of radio frequency identification tracking technology on state-issued identification cards. A third measure would require law enforcement to obtain a warrant before accessing geographic location data stored by a wireless phone user's telephone provider.
ACLU of Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel says the bills will ensure Oklahomans enjoy the benefits of new technologies "without inching towards a surveillance society."
