Bipartisan effort tries to limit federal spying in California

By John Hrabe | Cal Watchdog

Federal agencies could find it harder to spy on Californians if a new bill proposed this legislative session becomes law.

State senators Ted Lieu, D-Torrance, and Joel Anderson, R-San Diego, introduced legislation on Monday that would ban state agencies, officials and corporations that provide services to the state from supporting or assisting the federal government to spy or collect data on Californians, unless the government first obtains a warrant. The lawmakers say that they introduced Senate Bill 828 following “the repeated federal admissions of widespread spying on innocent American citizens.”
