Wisconsin GPS bill passes, Washington fails to enact criminal GPS laws

by GPS4US 2014-03-21 10:47

Two states are going opposite directions with GPS laws.

We told you about Wisconsin lawamakers’ efforts to make using GPS to secretly track another person’s
vehicle illegal. Well, that bill took the next step on Thursday, passing the state assembly and moving
to the state Senate for a vote. The Senate must pass the bill by April 1 or it will be shelved until at
least 2015.

The law would be punishable with up to $10,000 in fines and nine months in jail.

Meanwhile, the state of Washington failed to bring to vote a bill that sets statewide minimum
requirements for public and private entities that provide electronic monitoring for criminals sentenced
to wear GPS devices.

Washington has no standards in place, and GPS criminal monitoring laws vary from county to county,
giving some criminals a lenient penalty for cutting off their all-knowing electronic accessories.

Indeed, it’s a tale of two states.
