DENVER (AP) - A bill to limit government surveillance in Colorado cleared the state Senate Friday.

The measure places limits on how long state agencies keep “passive surveillance” records, such as still or video images of traffic conditions and activity at parking garages. The agencies could keep the records for a year. Beyond that, the surveillance records would be available only if they’re evidence in a civil or criminal case.

Senators approved the bill 34-0. It has already passed the House, but the two chambers must rectify differences before the bill is ready to be signed into law.
