Arizona governor signs phone pretext bill

Arizona Governor Napolitano signed HB 2785, Telephone Records, Unauthorized Sale Prohibited, into law this week. The Arizona law defines civil sanctions and classifies unauthorized access of telephone account information as a misdemeanor. As in other states, Arizona expands law enforcement authority in this area to allow access in the course of “official duties.”

The Arizona papers don’t appear to have given the story much ink.
