CA Senate Supports Cell Phone ‘Kill Switch’

From The Sacramento Bee:

The California Senate reversed course Thursday, approving a bill it had rejected last week that requires cell phones be equipped with remote “kill switches” allowing owners to disable them when stolen.

Senate Bill 962 pit two influential lobbies against each other — law enforcement groups who said the measure would reduce crime against technology companies that argued the bill wasn’t necessary because they are voluntarily giving customers the option to activate remote disabling.
