1 Oklahoma’s Capitol Offenders 2010 Meet the “Chippers”

2 Oklahoma elects 149 legislators. In 2008, 380 lobbyists representing 687 clients were registered in the state. FOLLOW the MONEY

3 HB 2569 HB 2569 by Wesselhoft/Newberry - Prohibiting RFID tracking tags in the OK DL/ID cards. This popular bill passed both the House and the Senate and was sent to the Governor on 4/26/10. Governor Henry vetoed the bill 4/28/10. NOTE: HB 2569 was targeted from the beginning by an out-of-state special interest group called SIA (Security Industry Associations, in Alexandria, VA).SIA 1/26/10 a representative from SIA called Wesselhoft asking him to drop this bill; Wesselhoft refused. Later, legislator-turned-lobbyist Jim Dunlap, representing HID Global (a SIA member), attempted to amended the bill to allow for RFID tracking tags on the OK DL/IDs. After much uproar the amendment was withdrawn. HID Global 4/26/10 SIA CEO Richard Chace sent a letter to the Governor asking him to veto HB 2569; Henry vetoed the bill on 4/28/10. The House ran a veto override on 5/11/10 which failed [13 members were excused, several of whom walked the vote]. Although support was secured for a 2nd veto override attempt, House leadership balked and wouldn't run it.

4 Tagging of people by implantable micro chips is already illegal in Oklahoma (and some other states) If we had to carry and ID Card or driver’s license with one of these devices we would still be tagged because you need an ID for nearly everything! Many people object to being tagging and tracked- RFID is for inventory, NOT human beings!

5 In state after state, industry lobbyists like HID Global and the SIA have imposed, using their influence and power to stifle privacy protective state legislation.

But then, he says, "the business lobby hit the issue hard," which led to the bill stalling in committee.

Kathleen Carroll, director of government relations for HID Global, who helped quash a California bill that sought to limit the use of RFID technology, will head up a new group called the Emerging Technologies Advocacy Group, under the auspices of the Security Industry Association.

6 Sen. Kenneth Corn officials with the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety said they have no plans to use RFID. Oh REALLY?

8 The SIA Says; Who are these “ill-informed dunderheads using “twisted facts” and “emotions” to sound the alarm about the risk of using RFID technology in our identity documents? to track and monitor us ? Here is a short list of those who have expressed concern about such use of RFID chips; Numerous US government officials and committees, Security, Privacy and Legal experts, technicians, researchers, scholars, scientists and even some high level members of the RFID industry itself! Here is a short list of those who have expressed concern about such use of RFID chips; Numerous US government officials and committees, Security, Privacy and Legal experts, technicians, researchers, scholars, scientists and even some high level members of the RFID industry itself! The enormous volume of evidence that gives any reasonable person cause to question whether RFID is appropriate for tagging our personal items including our ID cards simply drowns the SIA’s flimsy statements to the contrary. The SIA has everything to gain by our government’s adoption of their technology so why should anyone take their word for it? Where is their evidence? Whether or not you are concerned about being forced to carry an ID card with an embedded tracking device, you might still be a bit worried about this matter. When a bill is written and passed with as much support as this one has yet is struck down on the word of an industry mogul and lobbyist, you have to ask … Who exactly is running the show in our state?

9 ACLU Blasts Governor Henry Over Veto "We're disappointed by Governor Henry because this is a good bill,“ "Tracking someone through their driver's license is a violation of privacy and the government has no right to do that.“ --Tamya Cox, legislative counsel for the ACLU of Oklahoma "We're disappointed by Governor Henry because this is a good bill,“ "Tracking someone through their driver's license is a violation of privacy and the government has no right to do that.“ --Tamya Cox, legislative counsel for the ACLU of Oklahoma House Bill 2569 would have blocked the federal government from tracking individuals through a radio frequency identity chip embedded in their driver's licenses.

10 --Policing 2020, a book published by the FBI’s Futures Working Group in 2007 Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips are very small information technology devices that are attached or embedded into anything that needs to be tracked or identified. “RFID chips coupled with wireless digital sensors that can monitor anything or any activity we deem important “ The FBI should know what RFID is good for...

13 RFID tags can be remotely and secretly read “Unfortunately, RFID chips can be read by any reader, not just the ones at passport control. The upshot of this is that travelers carrying around RFID passports are broadcasting their identity.” –Bruce Schneier, security expert RFID tags can be remotely and secretly read “Unfortunately, RFID chips can be read by any reader, not just the ones at passport control. The upshot of this is that travelers carrying around RFID passports are broadcasting their identity.” –Bruce Schneier, security expert Security Experts... Tracking of objects, goods, cases, pallets and animals is a key functionality of RFID. Tracking of people is possible if they carry or wear objects that include RFID tags.

14 In 2007, a Govt. Accountability Office official warned that ; “Once a particular individual is identified through an RFID tag, personally identifiable information can be retrieved from any number of sources and then aggregated to develop a profile of the individual. Both tracking and profiling can compromise an individual’s privacy,” In 2007, a Govt.

15 We already wisely don't issue licenses to illegal aliens, but with the enhanced license you have to be able to not just prove your citizenship, but prove it via a wireless chip. Everyone who applies will have a new unique federal ID number assigned to them in addition to their current Social Security Number. The wireless chip then carries that new number, which can be wirelessly scanned by common readers up to 30 feet away, even while it's still in your wallet. They mandate RFID identification like this in China, but EDLs would represent the biggest rollout to date for governmental use in the United States. MI Rep. Paul Opsommer on “Enhanced Driver’s Licenses” April “The wireless chip then carries that new number, which can be wirelessly scanned by common readers up to 30 feet away, even while it's still in your wallet. There is currently nothing in the law prohibiting the government from using this to track people ….also nothing in the law that would prohibit banks, hospitals, hotels, or others from linking you with the number and using it for their own marketing purposes or selling it.” MI State Rep. Paul Opsommer on “Enhanced Driver’s Licenses”

The rest scattered The vote, held on May 11, failed by a vote of 69 Yes, 19 Nay, with 13 Excused. 4 legislators actually absent for the vote. The rest scattered State Rep. Paul Wesselhöft said he was disappointed when some of his fellow House members walked out instead of casting a vote on the override of the governor’s veto of a bill that protects Oklahoman’s right to privacy.

17 Voted NO to Override HB 2569 May 11, 2010

18 By more than one witness account, however, Rep. Mike Shelton, (D- Oklahoma County), was actually in the Chambers during the vote but chose to not cast a vote. When the Chair reminded the House members that House rules state that all members present in the Chamber must cast a vote, Mike Shelton walked out. Rep. Lee Denny is very attentive to legislation that expands government control but when it comes to limiting government intrusion into our lives-Denney just drifts away….
