Congressman Ted Yoho (R-FL-03) offered an amendment to a bill that was accepted by voice, which would prohibit any money to be used to mandate any type of government GPS location device on personal vehicles.
The amendment was to H.R. 4745 – Transportation, Housing and Urban Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2015 (THUD), in which Yoho voted in favor of.
“My amendment protects individuals privacy and avoids the slippery slope of government knowing where you are at all times,” said Yoho. “Government surveillance has run rampant and this is just another check against any infringement on your personal liberties.
