I find this comical and baseless to have to pass a blue law like this. It can mean only one thing, tracking the public through subversive means.

This service is already provided free and why they need a law to register people movements is ridiculous. I think this is a fallout law so law enforcement can track people more easily and without the need for warrants and interstate travel of citizens. This list is kept and maintained by state law enforcement departments and that is very suspicious in my books. To volunteer tracking information is not unconstitutional but it still violates privacy and rights of whose names are donated. And who knows, how many people with warrants can be found with this system when family volunteers inflammation on the whereabouts of people with unknown warrants?

Government should never be handed private and privileged information, this law is subversive and criminal overtones for government intervention of people rights.
