Indiana bills seek to shelter digital privacy

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana lawmakers fed up with the National Security Agency scandal and other government snooping are pushing bills that would ban high-tech searches of cellphones, computer tablets and other digital devices without a warrant.

Two bills that would protect Hoosiers from illegal electronic eavesdropping remain alive at the Statehouse. Another bill that would have made warrantless digital searches a felony died in a Senate committee.

A bill sponsored by Rep. Eric Koch (kuk) of Bedford covers a wide range of digital devices, ranging from email to police drones.

Sen. Brent Waltz of Greenwood has proposed prohibiting police from extracting data from motorists' cellphones without a warrant or probable cause.
