+ - RFID Privacy Bill Vetoed in RI->

Submitted by smitty777
smitty777 (1612557) writes "The governor of Rhode Island vetoed a bill putting privacy restrictions on RFID chips used for tracking schoolchildren, government employees, and EZPass transponders.

His logic? "Why would the General Assembly therefore place restrictions on the use of this technology as an option for all students?" Carcieri wrote. "In certain circumstances, it may be helpful for schools to have the ability to quickly identify where each of their students is located... Such circumstances may include weather-related natural disasters, terrorist or criminal events or even a need for use during field trips and outside school activities."

Thoughts on the warrantless tracking of toll information for legal purposes is currently being debated — with Mass saying no and Wisconsin saying yes"
