MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Assembly is set to take up a bill that would outlaw using GPS to secretly track someone.

Under the Republican measure, anyone who secretly places a GPS device on another person’s vehicle or obtains information about a person’s movement using a GPS device would be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by up to $10,000 in fines and nine months in jail.

The Assembly’s criminal justice committee passed the bill on a 9-0 vote last week. Republican leaders have placed the bill on the Assembly’s agenda for Thursday, the chamber’s last scheduled floor period of the two-year legislative session.
