Facebook privacy bill backed by CO House

DENVER — A social media privacy bill that would prevent employers from requiring employee passwords has won initial approval in the Colorado House.

The bill would not prohibit companies from looking at Facebook pages or punishing employees for what they post on their personal sites. But it would ban them from requiring current or potential employees to provide passwords for personal accounts.

The measure won initial approval on a unanimous voice vote Friday. Republican Rep. Brian DelGrosso said the privacy requirement wouldn’t apply to social media interactions done on company equipment or on work time.

One more vote is required before the privacy bill heads to the Senate.
