House kills license plate scanners

CONCORD - The House voted overwhelmingly - 250-97 - to kill a bill that would have allowed police to use license plate scanners.

And then House members voted 214-135 to prohibit the House from considering the issue again this session.

House Bill 675 would have allowed police to retain the license plate data for three minutes to match data bases for wanted or missing people. Local communities would have had to vote to allow their police to use the readers.

But opponents argued the bill violates the privacy of the state's citizens and violates their constitutional rights.

But supporters said the bill will enhance the public safety.

New Hampshire will continue to be the only state in the country to prohibit the use of the license plate scanner.
