TOPEKA, Kan. — New legislation intended to keep citizen data out of government hands encountered steep opposition Tuesday from – wait for it – the government.

But opponents representing law enforcement, county prosecutors and local municipalities across Kansas say in its current form the bill is simply too broad, and would do more harm than good.

Members of the state House Judiciary Committee spent more than 90 minutes hashing out the details of Rep. Brett Hildabrand’s HB 2421, the Fourth Amendment Preservation and Protection Act of 2014.
