MADISON, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) A new Wisconsin bill would make it a crime for you to track other people in their vehicles, by secretly putting GPS devices on them. The Assembly's criminal justice committee will hold a public hearing on the measure, and then vote on it. Pewaukee Republican Adam Neylon is the bill's lead author. It has support from lawmakers of both parties.
Under the bill, anyone who secretly puts a G-P-S tracking device on another person's vehicle -- or uses information from another vehicle through G-P-S -- could be guilty of a criminal misdemeanor. It's not certain whether the bill could pass both houses before the current session ends early next month.
