SACRAMENTO - On February 23, 2015, Senator Marty Block introduced Senate Bill 298, a bill supported by the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA).
"SB 298 would add money laundering to the list of offenses for which a court may issue an order allowing the interception of electronic communications," said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. "Money laundering is a difficult crime to detect and to gather the evidence needed for prosecution. SB 298 would help law enforcement to solve money laundering cases."
Currently, offenses such as murder, specified weapons violations and human trafficking are on the list of offenses in which a court may order the interception of electronic communications.
