California Assembly Passes Cellphone Kill Switch Bill

Because of the size of its market, when California enacts a law about a consumer product, it often becomes the standard for the rest of the country. So it’s worth reporting that California’s assembly passed a measure requiring smartphones made after July 1, 2015 to feature a kill switch that would render the phone useless in the event that it’s stolen. The San Jose Merscury News says the state senate has already passed the bill and Governor Jerry Brown is expected to sign it.
