The Steven Tyler Act seeks to protect celebrities' privacy in the Aloha State
Now, Steven Tyler is adding his voice to the mix.
The rock star and American Idol alum, 64, has proposed Hawaii Senate Bill 465 – now dubbed the Steven Tyler Act – which the would provide a legal remedy for celebrities photographed while engaged in “personal or familial activity” and have a reasonable expectation of privacy, according to a press release obtained by PEOPLE Friday.
“The paradise of Hawaii is a magnet for celebrities who just want a peaceful vacation,” says Tyler. “As a person in the public eye, I know the paparazzi are there and we have to accept that. But when they intrude into our private space, disregard our safety and the safety of others, that crosses a serious line that shouldn’t be ignored.”
The bill will be presented in a Senate hearing in Honolulu, Hawaii. It is currently being endorsed by two-thirds of the Senate.
