Washington Senate passes bill to regulate governments’ use of facial-recognition technology

Washington state senators Wednesday approved a bill that would begin regulating the use of facial-recognition programs by local and state governments. The bill now goes to the House for consideration.

Under the bill the surveillance would be allowed in support of law enforcement with a search warrant or an agency director’s determination under some conditions, such as an emergency that involves risk of death.
