Mass. Bill Would Ban Use of GPS to Track Workers

September 10, 2009

Massachusetts lawmakers are considering prohibiting the use of global positioning systems technology (GPS) to track state employees, according to the Associated Press.

Currently, the Massachusetts Highway Department uses GPS devices to track snowplow and road salting contractors.

Sponsored by Rep. Robert Nyman (D-Hanover), the bill would ban the use of GPS devices by state authorities unless agreed to during collective bargaining agreements, according to AP.

A public hearing for the bill was scheduled for Sept. 8 before the Committee on State Administration.
