RFID

A bill (S.B. 682)introduced in the California Senate would prohibit state agencies from including RFID tags in identity documents—such as driver’s licenses, student identification badges, and medical cards. The bill’s sponsor, Sen. Joe Simitian (D), indicated in the text of the bill that RFID technology would allow data to be scanned secretly or remotely and, therefore, would greatly magnify the “potential risk to individual privacy, safety, and economic well-being.”
