California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill that supporters say is the nation’s toughest law on protecting student privacy, Associated Press reports. SB 1177 prohibits companies from using students’ personal information for profit, the report states. Brown also signed a bill that would extend the expiration date of the state’s 25-year-old Wiretap law from 2015 to 2020. The bill allows law enforcement access to telephones and email to investigate serious felonies. The governor vetoed, however, a bill that would have required police to obtain warrants for surveillance via drones.
