Personal Privacy Protection Caucus

PrivacyCaucus

Delegate Scott Surovell is at the podium with members of the new caucus.

A bipartisan group of state senators and delegates has formed the General Assembly’s first-ever “Personal, Privacy Protection Caucus” of lawmakers.  Their goal is to refine the law to prevent state and local governments from large-scale gathering and storage of personal data—especially if it takes place without individual warrants.  As Virginia Public Radio’s Anne Marie Morgan reports, the members say they’re also trying to strike the right balance between public safety and Fourth Amendment protections.



The caucus plans to hold hearings and consult law enforcement this year to craft new legislation.
