HONOLULU -

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is scheduled to appear Friday morning in front of the Committee on Judiciary and Labor to testify in favor of what has been billed as the "Steven Tyler Act," according to the office of Sen. Kalani English.

SB465 would give celebrities, anyone else, extra protection from photographers and reporters who invade their privacy while they vacation in the islands or relax at their vacation homes.

Maui is a popular spot for vacationing celebrities and Sen. English, who represents the Valley Isle, introduced the legislation.

Sen. English says Tyler had photographs taken while in his bedroom and said other celebrities complained when snapshots taken with powerful lens were sold to the tabloids.

The bill has the support of at least 17 senators. Opponents say the bill limits constitutional rights.
