SACRAMENTO — On a second attempt,California lawmakers advanced a billThursday that would require electronics man-ufacturers to install a shut-off function in allsmartphones as a way to deter what one sen-ator called a crime wave of thefts.The legislation by Democratic Sen. MarkLeno requires companies to produce smart-phones with technology that makes theminoperable if the owner loses possession.It fell two votes short of passing the 40-member Senate two weeks ago, but Lenosaid amendments since then removed oppo-sition from Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corp.It now applies to smartphones manufacturedand sold after July 2015 and no longerincludes tablets.The wireless industry, however, opposesthe measure as unnecessary.“We have a crime wave sweeping ourstate,” Leno, who represents San Francisco,said in urging support for his bill. He saidtwo of three robberies in that city nowinclude the theft of a smartphone, alongwith one of four robberies in Oakland.“These crimes are up at double-digitrates,” he said. “We’re trying to keep ourconstituents safe on the streets.”It advanced as a San Francisco supervisorproposed legislation this week that wouldrequire smartphones and other mobiledevices sold in the city to be equipped witha “kill switch” to render them inoperable if they’re lost or stolen.Similar legislation is being considered inNew York, Illinois and Minnesota, and billshave been introduced in both houses of Congress. Also Thursday, the Minnesota House of Representatives passed similar legislationthat would require that all new smartphonesand cellular-connected tablet computers soldin Minnesota after July 2015 have a killswitch anti-theft function. The MinnesotaSenate passed a slightly different versionlast week.In California, Democratic Sen. AlexPadilla noted recent reports that somesmartphone owners are endangering them-selves by using phones’tracking softwareto confront thieves and retrieve theirphones.The bill, SB962, passed the Senate 26-8and now goes to the Assembly. Leno saidmore amendments will be considered there,including several offered by Apple thisweek.
Senate approves nonprofit campaign disclosure bill
SACRAMENTO — California lawmakershave approved a bill that would force politicalnonprofits to reveal their donors. SB27 byDemocratic Sen. Lou Correa of Anaheimpassed the Senate on Thursday after it wasamended to limit disclosure to donations madeafter July 1. It now goes to Gov. Jerry Brown.The bill responds to $15 million of anony-mous contributions that were funneledthrough conservative nonprofits before the2012 general election. The amended billpassed 28-7, with four Republicans in sup-port. An initial version fell one vote short of the supermajority it needed in March, whenRepublicans objected that it would revealdonors retroactively.
Issa condemns Donnelly comments on Islamic law
SACRAMENTO — Republican U.S.Rep. Darrell Issa on Thursday stronglycondemned comments by GOPgubernato-rial front-runner Tim Donnelly, in whichthe state lawmaker has tried to tie hisIndian-American rival to fundamentalistIslamic law, calling his statements “hate-ful and ignorant garbage.”Donnelly, a state assemblyman who ispopular with the tea party, has repeatedlysaid this week that Neel Kashkari supportedShariah banking code when he was a seniorofficial at the U.S. Treasury Department in2008. On Facebook, Donnelly posted a linkto a banking seminar hosted by the depart-ment during which Kashkari, a Hindu, deliv-ered opening remarks. “As far as I’m concerned, this type of stu-pidity disqualifies Tim Donnelly from beingfit to hold any office, anywhere. Donnelly isno longer a viable option for California vot-ers,” Issa, who has endorsed Kashkari, saidin a statement.
