Automated license plate reader legislation clears Senate Floor

Legislation regarding the use and storage of data collected from automated license plate readers cleared its final senate hurdle on Thursday. The bill says that police may store the data for up to 90 days to assist in criminal investigations. Privacy advocates have argued that law enforcement should not store the data at all, however amendments on the floor that would make that a reality failed in the Judiciary and Transportation Committees.  (S.F. 86)
