The New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a bill that would outlaw the use of GPS to track people without a court order, reports NHPR. The bill's sponsor, Rep. Neal Kurk, resuscitated the bill by highlighting the story of a jealous boyfriend tracking his girlfriend with a "$30 GPS device," adding, "it's not science fiction; it's happening now." The bill passed with a 25-vote margin but must go to a second committee before a final vote. Opponents say the bill does not take into account the technical challenges and unintended consequences of banning such tracking in today's age of smart devices.
