Moratorium on RFIDs in driver's licenses

Sen. Simitian's SB 28 prohibits the DMV from issuing drivers' licenses or ID cards that use radio waves capable of transmitting personal information. The bill is being considered in the Assembly Transportation Committee today.

Simitian calls the legislation a " 'look before you leap approach' that would give officials time to ensure that any technology adopted by the DMV would not violate privacy rights."
