Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has introduced the Electronic Communications Privacy Act Amendments Act of 2011, a bill that would update the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Pub. L. No. 99-508, 100 Stat. 1848, 18 U.S.C. 2501 et seq.) and provide enhanced protection for email and online communications. The bill would also provide for protection of location information that is collected and stored by mobile devices and applications.
