The House Judiciary Committee voted 34 to 0 for a bill seeking to bring constitutional guarantees of the right to privacy into the electronic age. The legislation would extend laws that now protect the privacy of the mails and land-line telephone conversations to also cover "electronic mail" and some telephones that use radio waves. The bill was cleared at the request of Rep. Robert W. Kastenmeier (D-Wis.), chairman of Judiciary's subcommittee on courts, civil liberties and administration of justice.
