Hawaiian Data Retention Bill HB 2288 tabled after vehement opposition

Treena Shapiro reporting for Associated Press:

. State lawmakers have tabled a proposal that would have required Internet service providers to retain all Hawaii consumers’ subscriber data and browsing histories for a minimum of two years.

Introduced a way to combat Internet-related crime, House Bill 2288 received support from Honolulu’s police and prosecutor departments and one individual, but was otherwise greeted with vehement opposition at a hearing Thursday.
