Bad legislative bills don’t die they just wait a year. Declan McCullagh reports at CNet:
All Internet service providers would need to track their customers’ online activities to aid police in future investigations under legislation introduced Tuesday as part of a Republican “law and order agenda.”
Employees of any Internet provider who fail to store that information face fines and prison terms of up to one year, the bill says. The U.S. Justice Department could order the companies to store those records forever.
“Law and Order” is legislative code for bend over and take it like a citizen.
