Castro ACLU

CHICAGO – Yesterday, State Senator Cristina Castro (D-Elgin) held a press conference at the ALCU Illinois headquarters, alongside fellow lawmaker State Representative Ann Williams (D-Chicago), to speak about The Protecting Household Privacy Act.

“This proposal is the first measure in the nation that creates privacy rights regarding smart household devices,” Castro said. “Law enforcement should have the same evidence laws they use to come through you door to look through your wife doorbell.”

Senate Bill 3414 creates the Protecting Household Privacy Act, which prohibits a law enforcement agency from obtaining household electronic data.

The legislation is an initiative of ACLU-Illinois and is the first measure in the nation that specifically deals with privacy rights regarding “smart” household devices.
