Drivers' licenses: fingerprints and computer chips?

By: staff

Date: Tuesday, 18. November 2008

Two Virginia congressmen will introduce a bill in Congress today to make U.S. driver's licenses standard across the country and to add computer chips and possibly fingerprints to the licenses as identifiers. The representatives are calling their bill the Driver's License Modernization Act of 2002. They say the new law would help to prevent fraud and improve national security while it makes license requirements consistent among all the states. According to the article on GlobalAutoNet , a $315 million federal expenditure called for in the bill would be used to link up all states' computer systems. A controversial clause in the bill would allow other computerized applications to be applied to the new driver's licenses, including private companies' applications such as ATM or credit-card capabilities.
