Add comment on:Calif. State Senate Passes Bill to Protect Public’s Access to Communication Services
California Newswire (repost)
In August of 2011, the Bay Area Rapid Transit Agency (BART) shut down mobile services during public protests. SB 1160 would protect the public’s access to 911 services and the right to use communication networks for any lawful communications. The bill would maintain the statewide standard allowing service interruption only as directed by a court order based on probable cause and would preempt conflicting local policies.
