Wyoming Legislative Committee Endorses Proposed Privacy Amendment

A state legislative committee voted Friday to recommend changing the Wyoming Constitution to specify that individuals have a right to privacy.

Sen. Chris Rothfuss, D-Laramie, is chairman of a digital privacy task force that recommended the change. He told members of the Joint Corporations, Elections and Politics Subdivisions Interim Committee in Cheyenne that it’s necessary to establish the state respects personal privacy as more information becomes computerized.

The measure would go to state voters in 2016 if it clears the Legislature in next year’s session.
