California assembly passes digital privacy bill

John Ribeiro | Sept. 9, 2015
The bill aims to prevent warrantless government access to private electronic communications.

Leno tweeted on Tuesday that the legislation "strikes just the right balance to protect digital privacy, spur innovation, and safeguard public safety." 

Three previous digital privacy bills, authored by Leno, which were introduced between 2011 and 2013, were vetoed by the governor. Since then, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled in Riley v. California that law enforcement must obtain a warrant before accessing data on a person's mobile phone after an arrest.
