On Monday Rep. Jimmy Gazaway (R – Paragould) filed H.B. 1586 clarifying Arkansas’ law concerning video voyeurism.

The bill makes simple changes to state law that help clarify Arkansas’ video voyeurism statutes.

This is an issue that Family Council has worked on in the past.

In 2007 we helped secure passage of Act 187 strengthening Arkansas’ anti-voyeurism laws.

At the time, advances in technology had made it possible for voyeurs to take inappropriate pictures of people using cameras hidden in shoes, backpacks, and elsewhere. Act 187 of 2007 helped update Arkansas law to keep pace with changes in technology.

H.B. 1586 makes simple changes to Arkansas’ video voyeurism law that help clarify and strengthen the law even further.
