A 'data haven' for abortion in California

A bill passed Wednesday night by the California State Assembly aims to make the state a “data haven” that shields data related to reproductive health against investigations launched by states that have outlawed or severely curtailed abortion access in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s overturning Roe v. Wade earlier this year. AB 1242 prohibits California law-enforcement agencies from sharing information related to a legal abortion being investigated by out-of-state agencies. It also aims to prevent companies headquartered in California — particularly major tech firms and data brokers — from sharing information with out-of-state agencies investigating abortion procedures that would be legal in California.   Benjamin Freed reports.

Another round for broadband

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper on Wednesday announced $206 million in state grants to expand internet access in rural communities across the state. The new funding, which was made available through North Carolina’s Growing Rural Economies with Access to Technology, or GREAT, program, is expected to bring high-speed internet to nearly 85,000 households and more than 2,400 businesses. The announcement is the latest in a string of investments by states designed to close the connectivity gaps in their communities. Colin Wood has details.


How did a voting machine wind up on eBay?

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said yesterday that her office is investigating how a ballot-marking device belonging to the clerk in Wexford County, Michigan, wound up on eBay. The device, manufactured by Dominion Voting Systems, was eventually purchased for $1,200 by Harri Hursti, the founder of the DEF CON hacker convention's Voting Village, who notified Benson's office. CNN reports that the machine, manufactured by Dominon Voting Systems, was listed on eBay by an electronics collector from Ohio, who found it at a Goodwill shop. The seller wrote in his eBay listing that buyers could “Own a piece of history!” — a nod to the conspiracy theories that have flourished around Dominion since the 2020 election. Officials still don't know how the machine made its way from the clerk's office to the Goodwill shop. Read the rest at CNN.
