California Governor Vetoes RFID Tags In Driver's Licenses, Chooses Security Over Convenience

California Gov. Jerry Brown has vetoed a bill that would have seen an option for radio frequency identification tags in driver's licenses. RFID tags would have been voluntary, but they would have also opened up situations in which licenses with tags are expected, making them mandatory. The problem with RFID tags is that they could be the target of hacks and security breaches, and the idea of including them in licenses has alarmed privacy advocates ever since the bill was proposed.
