In Virginia, a bill making it illegal to deceptively install an electronic tracking system on a person's vehicle has cleared the House, according to the Associated Press.
The House voted 88-10 to pass Delegate Joe May's bill. The Loudoun County Republican introduced the legislation at the request of a constituent who was shocked to discover that a private investigator hired by his estranged wife had legally installed a GPS device on the undercarriage of his car.
The bill carves out exemptions for police with warrants, parents tracking their kids, any legal representative of an incapacitated adult, owners of fleet vehicles and electronic communications providers such as OnStar and cell phone companies
The bill still has to make its way through the Senate
