Florida fighting Real ID, RFID in their licenses and e-authentication

BTC - On March 30th, Florida Sen. Anitre Flores submitted an amendment with high ambitions for Floridian driver identity. The amendment was passed out of the local Transporation Committee in SB 1150 and is now headed for Florida State's Budget Committee. The Committee Substitute now contains language may allow for RFID tags to be added to Florida drivers licenses. However, that's not the worst of what's ahead. Online authentication of drivers license information is being added as an alternative to another Big Database DHS program, E-Verify.
