Government and Political Roundup: Bill limiting employees' access to social media accounts gaining momentum
A Democratic state representative from Madison is sponsoring legislation which would keep employers from making their employees or job applicants provide access to social media accounts. Melissa Sargent's bill has bipartisan support. Republican state Representative Gary Bies is a co-sponsor. He says social media access should be protected. Schools or landlords would also be prevented from gaining access to the personal Internet accounts of students or tenants.
