Massachusetts lawmakers have had it with “upskirting,” or the act of sneaking a photo up a woman’s skirt.

One day after the state’s highest court ruled that a man who snapped “upskirt” photos on the subway had violated no state laws, lawmakers sprung into action. USA Today reports that an “upskirting” ban sailed through the House and the Senate and now merely awaits the signature of the governor.

Violators will face up to two years in prison and fines as high as $5,000 for photographing adult victims, $10,000 for underage victims. House Speaker Robert DeLeo said it was time “to bring Massachusetts laws up-to-date with technology and the predatory practice of ‘upskirting.'”
