• Daily Paul.com
Today, the New Hampshire House and Senate gave final approval to a bill which bans government officials from obtaining "information contained in a portable electronic device" without a warrant "signed by a judge and based on probable cause." It now goes to the Governor's desk for a signature

House Bill 1533 (HB1533) was introduced by Rep. Neal Kurk and passed both the House and Senate by unanimous voice votes.

The bill sets up a direct legal conflict with federal surveillance programs as well. It reads, in part:

"Government entity" means a federal, state, county, or local government agency, including but not limited to a law enforcement agency or any other investigative entity, agency, department, division, bureau, board, or commission, or an individual acting or purporting to act for, or on behalf of, a federal, state, county, or local government agency. "Government entity" shall not apply to a federal government agency to the extent that federal statute preempts state statute.
