Just Say No to National ID Cards

Mike Krause of the Independence Institute wrote a column today "Just Say No to National ID Cards.

The bill before Congress is HR 4633, the “Driver’s License Modernization Act of 2002," now sitting in the House Subcommittee on Environment, Technology and Standards. You can look it up on Thomas, the Federal Legislation Server. Under the bill, "The DMV would be changed from an agency which licenses qualified drivers, to one which validates our existence and holds centralized control over anything requiring identity verification."

We like it when we can agree with a right-leaning organization --and on privacy issues we often do. Like Michael says,"We still don’t need no stinkin’ National ID card."
