House Bill 1074 (HB1074) would ban the NSA facility from all public state utilities, ban the use of NSA collected evidence in court, ban universities from partnering with the NSA and ban all political subdivisions from assisting the NSA from within the state. Any state entity, employee or contractor refusing to comply with the law would be immediately fired and banned from all future contracts within the state.
I think this is a big deal. States are pushing back against the federal government.
Where will it all end up? How will it shake out? Will states be forced to help the NSA? Will they have Federal funding withheld if they don't?
