Description

Government Data Collection and Dissemination Practices Act; license plate readers. Codifies an opinion of the Attorney General regarding the Government Data Collection and Dissemination Practices Act by limiting the ability of law-enforcement and regulatory agencies to use license plate readers to collect and maintain personal information on individuals where a warrant has not been issued and there is no reasonable suspicion of criminal activity by the individuals. The bill provides that information collected by a license plate reader without a warrant shall be used only for the investigation of a crime or a report of a missing person and shall be retained only for seven days, after which such information shall be purged unless relevant to an ongoing investigation of a crime or missing person report. The bill also prohibits an agency from acquiring personal information collected from license plate readers from any other agency or a third-party private vendor if the agency would not have been permitted to collect or retain the information on its own.
