25 Oct: Norcross “Anti-Big Brother Act” Passed By Senate

(TRENTON) – The “Anti-Big Brother Act” (S-2057) sponsored by Senator Donald Norcross (D-Camden/Gloucester) was passed out of the Senate today. Senator Norcross crafted the bill after events in the Lower Merion School District in Montgomery Township, PA where students – without their knowledge or consent – were recorded and monitored in their homes through school-issued laptops.

“Parents have a right to know when their children are bringing home devices that could record them and their families,” added Senator Norcross. “They need to be able to make an informed decision about how and when their child uses these educational tools.”
