New bill proposed in New York State
A proposal being discussed in Albany would add a safety measure for victims of domestic violence by using GPS technology. The bill in the state Assembly, A03499, is sponsored by Buffalo-area Democrat Crystal Peoples-Stokes.

Currently, state law allows law enforcement to use GPS technology to track sex offenders and parolees, though the locating system is not allowed to track domestic violence offenders in New York state.
