Bill in Iowa legislature causes privacy arguments

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Critics argue a bill currently in the Iowa Legislature may infringe on privacy rights.

The bill would let police attach a device to a suspect's car which uses global positioning system technology to follow the movement of a car.

The device could be used for 30 days.

Opponents of the bill say the measure would allow authorities too intrude on anyone's privacy, and would offer more than enough information which could be irrelevant to an investigation.
