Copywritten article describing it as perhaps superior to similar legislation introduced in Congress.

Scary, the Texas legislature considering some thing for the people. Are we sure this isn't fiction?

The law does need to be able to monitor criminal activity through their mobiles.

They can get a warrant for that Shirley--this keeps them from doing it to people they don't have grounds to do it to.

You are welcome Suheyla.
