- New York eyes 'textalyzer' to bust drivers using phones
By DAVID KLEPPER, Associated Press - Wednesday Jul 26, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Police in New York state may soon have a high-tech way of catching texting drivers: a device known as a "textalyzer" that allows an officer to quickly check if a phone has been in use before a crash."Despite laws to ban cellphone use while driving, some motorists still continue to insist on texting behind the wheel — placing themselves and others at substantial risk," Cuomo said in a statement first reported by The Associated Press.Digital privacy and civil liberties groups already have questioned whether the technology's use would violate personal privacy, noting that police can already obtain search warrants if they believe information on a private phone could be useful in a prosecution.Many security experts are skeptical when it comes to promises that the textalyzer would only access information about phone usage, and not personal material, according to Rainey Reitman, of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a nonprofit organization that advocates for civil liberties when it comes to digital technology.The committee will hear from supporters and opponents of the technology, law enforcement officials and legal experts before issuing a report, Cuomo's office said.

- Florida governor's office broke promise to LGBTQs
By MIKE SCHNEIDER, Associated Press - Wednesday Aug 9, 2017
Behind the scenes, gay rights advocates say his staffers went a step further, promising to pursue an executive order prohibiting discrimination against LGBTQ state workers and contractors.The advocates believe the order has become even more important in the past couple of weeks as the U.S. Justice Department — under Attorney General Jeff Sessions — filed court papers in a New York case saying that sexual orientation is not covered by Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, however, enforces the law against private employers and says sexual orientation is covered.After the Pulse massacre, the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, the gay advocates said two members of the governor's staff met at a hotel with leaders from the group Equality Florida.The governor's staffers — then-chief of staff Kim McDougal and legislative affairs director Kevin Reilly — asked what could be done to show solidarity with the LGBTQ community, and the advocates answered that he should issue the anti-discrimination order, according to the Equality Florida representatives.An executive order from the governor would be important for Jim Brenner, and his husband, Chuck Jones, because now there's too much ambiguity on whether gay state workers are protected from discrimination, said Brenner, who retired last September from a his job as fire management administrator at the Florida Forestry Division in Tallahassee.
