Missouri lawmakers say ‘no’ to RFID badges
a firm stance on RFID, particularly as it relates to the use of the technology for tracking purposes. Lawmakers in the state have now passed measures that would bar school districts from requiring students to use technology IDs for the purpose of monitoring students’ location. The privacy bill extends beyond student IDs, as it would also limit the disclosure of library records regarding use of e-books and digital materials. As SFGate.com reports, both bills are en route to Gov. Jay Nixon’s desk, where they will await a final signature.
