Assembly passes GPS tracking ban

Posted: Updated:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Assembly has passed a bill that would outlaw using GPS to secretly track someone.
   Under the Republican measure passed unanimously Thursday, anyone who secretly places a GPS device on another person's vehicle or obtains information about a person's movement using a GPS device would be guilty of a misdemeanor.
   That would be punishable by up to $10,000 in fines and nine months in jail.
   The bill now heads to the Senate, which must pass it on April 1 or it will die for the year.
