|SB 169 w/ SA 1||Committee||Hansen||This Act adopts the Uniform Civil Remedies for Unauthorized Disclosure of Intimate Images Act. This Act addresses an increasingly common form of abuse that can cause severe and often irreversible harm: the disclosure of private, sexually explicit images without consent. Much of the abuse is carried out electronically through internet websites, social media, email, or text messages, making it an interstate problem that is particularly suited for treatment by uniform state laws. This Act provides a uniform, comprehensive, clear, fair, and constitutionally sound definition of this harmful conduct and remedies for the harm it causes.
Some intimate images disclosed without consent were originally created with consent or obtained within a confidential relationship. In other cases, the images were originally created or obtained without consent through surreptitious recording devices or other forms of voyeurism, or through theft, computer hacking, coercion, bribery, fraud, or force.
Like many existing privacy laws, this Act applies only to sensitive content created or obtained under circumstances in which the individual had a reasonable expectation of privacy. Also similar to existing privacy laws, the Act includes limited exceptions for certain disclosures, including those made in the course of law enforcement, legal proceedings or education, medical treatment, or investigations of misconduct. This Act also includes an exception for disclosures relating to matters of public concern or public interest and disclosures reasonably intended to assist the victim. The Act further notes federal statutory limitations on the liability of providers and users of interactive computer services. The Act is narrowly drafted to avoid imposing liability on a discloser who lacks the requisite awareness of any of these elements: (1) that the image was created or obtained under circumstances in which the individual had a reasonable expectation of privacy or that the image was obtained through theft, bribery, false pretenses, voyeurism, or other wrongful acts, (2) that the individual shown in the image did not consent to the disclosure, or (3) that the individual shown was identifiable.||AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 10 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE DELAWARE UNIFORM CIVIL REMEDIES FOR UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF INTIMATE IMAGES ACT.|
|SB 182 w/ SA 1||Committee||Delcollo||This Act makes the following changes related to traffic control devices erected on order of the Secretary of the Department of Transportation (“Secretary”) limiting the size and weight of vehicles and loads permitted on a specific highway:
(1) Requires the Secretary to submit the order to the Registrar of Regulations for publication in the Register of Regulations and publish the order on the Department’s website.
(2) Clarifies that violation of a traffic control device erected by order of the Secretary is a specific offense.
(3) Increases the monetary penalty for a violation of a traffic control device erected by order of the Secretary over the existing penalty in § 4508 of Title 21.
(4) Makes a subsequent violation of a traffic control device erected by order of the Secretary a moving violation, which results in the Department assessing points on an individual’s license based on the violation.||AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 21 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO TRAFFIC CONTROL DEVICES FOR SIZE AND WEIGHT OF VEHICLES AND LOADS.|

|SA 2 to HB 212||Passed||McBride||First, this Amendment strikes House Amendments 1 and 5 and House Amendment 1 to House Amendment 5. This Amendment also strikes Senate Amendment 1.
Additionally, this Amendment clarifies that the definition of industrial landfill does not include a sanitary landfill or a disposal of hazardous waste.
Moreover, this Amendment makes restrictions for any industrial landfill that has not been approved by the Department to accept waste as of the effective date of the Act. Those restrictions include that the county, municipality, or other governmental entity having jurisdiction must be satisfied that all of the following have been established:
(1) The property on which the industrial landfill is or would be located is within an area which is zoned for heavy industrial activity.
(2) The property is subject to such process rules, regulations or ordinances as the county, municipality, or governmental entity requires by law.
(3) Necessary conditions may be applied in order to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of citizens within the jurisdiction.
(4) The industrial landfill is at least ¼ mile from any residence, school, park, hospital, residential community, and federally designated wetlands.
Finally, this Amendment provides that no permit or modification to a permit may be granted for an industrial landfill that authorizes a maximum height of more than 140 feet. This height restriction applies to any industrial landfill that has not been approved by the Department to accept waste as of the effective date of the Act.
