State Assembly passes bill allowing gas stations to ask for zip codes

SACRAMENTO, Calif.

The bill's author said the zip codes work to provide a layer of protection for consumers and businesses to prevent fraud.

The bill was drafted after the state /*Supreme Court*/ ruled that retailers' recording of zip codes can violate a customer's right to privacy.

The court sided with a customer who claimed Williams-Sonoma was selling the zip codes to marketing services.
