Proposed Bill To Require Private CCTV Camera Registration

Not that I think this bill has a chance of being passed, but one of our dumber assemblymen wants to allow municipalities to create registries of privately owned outdoor cameras. They'd make you register the name and contact info of the camera owner, the number of cameras, "the outdoor areas recorded by the camera", and "the means by which the camera’s footage is saved or stored, and the duration of time for which the footage is saved or stored", along with "any additional information the municipality deems necessary".

Information will be made available to law enforcement and subpoenas in criminal cases, and not subject to FOIA requests.

See a bunch of morons debate this issue with other morons here.
