MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Assembly is set to vote on a bill that would outlaw using GPS to track someone without their consent.
Rep. Adam Neylon's bill would make placing a GPS device on another person's vehicle without consent or collecting information from a GPS device that has been placed without consent a misdemeanor punishable by up to nine months in jail and $10,000 in fines.
The bill creates exceptions for police, parents and business owners tracking their company's vehicles.
Neylon, a Pewaukee Republican, introduced a similar bill near the end of the last legislative session nearly a year ago. The Assembly passed the measure unanimously then but the full Senate never voted on it before the session ended.
The Assembly was expected to vote on the measure Thursday.
