Tibbs/Martin Block RFID bill – guess they want a national ID card?


HB 1399 Blocked by Rep. Sue Tibbs and Rep. Steve Martin

Characterizing HB 1399 as a “solution in search of a problem”, Rep. Steve Martin, Vice-Chair of the House Public Safety Committee, along with Chair Rep. Sue Tibbs, has decided to not allow this bill a hearing in their committee.

 
Rep. Steve Martin (R-HD10)

Apparently both Martin and Tibbs are unaware of the pending May 2011 deadline to implement the provisions of the Real ID Act, thereby creating a National/International ID card.  Or they are aware and approve such a card.

HB 1399 (by Wesselhoft/Russell) prohibits the use RFID or RFID-type ink in the Oklahoma drivers’ licenses and state issued ID cards.  (This same bill passed, and was vetoed, in 2010 and was aimed at fighting the implementation of the Real ID Act in Oklahoma.)  

By preventing a hearing and vote on this bill, Martin and Tibbs are preemptively vetoeing HB 1399.

Please call/email Rep. Tibbs and Rep. Steve Martin and tell them to advance HB 1399.

Rep. Steve Martin, 405-557-7402 stevemartin@okhouse.gov
