PPI: Modernizing the State Identification System

The Progressive Policy Institute is pushing hard for modernizing and standardizing the states’ identification system focusing on requiring the states to use smartcard technology in their driver’s licenses and linking their DMV databases to each other. I’m still not convinced that this is anything that will enhance the governments ability to protect me from terrorist. Also their point about these IDs preventing identity theft doesn’t really hold water with me. Personally I think the stronger linking of databases has aided in identity theft rather than curtailed it.
