Legislature Passes Geolocation Privacy Protection Act; Law360, June 28, 2017

Hannah Meisel, Law360; Legislature Passes Geolocation Privacy Protection Act

"A bill in the Illinois General Assembly seeking to limit the collection and disclosure of a smartphone user's geolocation data within applications will be sent on to Gov. Bruce Rauner after the House narrowly approved the legislation Tuesday.

The so-called Geolocation Privacy Protection Act was already approved by the state Senate last month — one of a handful of bills proposed in the Illinois legislature this spring aimed at protecting mobile phone user data."
