An Indiana Senate committee has approved a bill that would make it illegal to take photographs or shoot footage at farms and businesses without the owner's consent.
The bill was approved February 12 on a 7-2 vote by the Senate Committee on Corrections and Criminal Law. It now moves to the full Senate for consideration.
Sen. Travis Holdman, R-Markle, Ind., told The Journal Gazette the bill targets animal rights vigilantes who enter private property with the sole intent of obtaining undercover photos or videos. The bill does not include photographs or videos taken from public property.
