California State Senator Bowen Introduces Bill to Regulate RFID
California state Senator Bowen has introduced a bill to regulate the use of radio frequency identification (RFID) systems.
Key elements of the bill is that it would require an individual’s written consent “before attaching or storing personally identifiable information with data collected via an RFID tag or before any personally identifiable information collected via an RFID system is shared with a third party.”
One of the big problems with this bill: it doesn’t define what RFID is. I think that it’s talking about Electronic Product Code tags, but it’s hard to know for sure. Perhaps its talking about Mobil Speed Pass. Perhaps it is talking about your building entry proximity card.
