    (a) Update statutes to reflect 21st Century mobile and Internet-based technologies.
    (b) Protect customers' constitutional rights, including, but not limited to, the rights of privacy and free speech, and the freedom from unlawful searches and seizures.
    (c) Enable state and local government agencies to protect public safety.
    (d) Clarify the process communications service providers are required to follow in response to requests from state and local agencies for customer information or in order to take action that would affect a customer's service, with a specific description of whether a subpoena, warrant, court order, or other process or documentation is required.
