CTIA Opposes California Law that Would Protect Consumers

CTIA The Wireless Association has voiced its members' opposition regarding California State Bill 1434, which would require law enforcement to obtain a warrant before requesting that wireless providers track their customers. The law would also require that network operators create a searchable database detailing when and how often law enforcement requests such data. The law is meant to prevent law enforcement from tracking consumer location information without a warrant except in certain emergency cases. The CTIA and members such as AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless, believe the law "may create confusion for wireless providers and hamper their response to legitimate law enforcement investigations. In addition, the provider reporting requirements create unduly burdensome and costly mandates on providers and their employees and are unnecessary as they will not serve wireless consumers." California S.B. 1434 has yet to go to vote.
