In their Own Words: Shutting off water to NSA center

First Published Feb 13 2014 09:11 am • Last Updated Feb 13 2014 01:30 pm

The Salt Lake Tribune, in an effort to allow legislators an opportunity to explain why bills they are sponsoring are important to them, is asking state leaders to talk about their measures for a feature called "In Their Own Words." The videos will appear regularly during the legislative session.

A bill (that has yet to be numbered) has been introduced that would prevent any state entity or any entity that contracts with the state from providing water and other support to agencies that collect massive amounts of data.

Bill sponsor Rep. Marc Roberts, R-Santaquin, says the measure is directed at the NSA Data Center in Bluffdale, adding that the state needs to intervene in what he sees as unreasonable search and seizure of personal information by the federal government.
