Submission + - RFID Privacy Bill Vetoed in RI->

smitty777 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...
