California lawmakers have been working on a bill for some time that would require a so-called “smartphone kill switch” in every phone, but Minnesota has beaten California to the punch and become the first state to enact such a law. It mirrors the California law very closely, but goes a step further by banning some cash sales of used phones.
The main provision of the bill covers how the proposed kill switch requirement would work.
