House approves electronic ID cards (Article)

CNET reports: "The U.S. House of Representatives approved on Thursday a sweeping set of rules aimed at forcing states to issue all adults federally approved electronic ID cards, including driver's licenses."

Under the law, if your ID card doesn't comply, you won't be able to access to: airplanes, trains, national parks, federal courthouses and other areas controlled by the federal government. I have my opinions about this subject, but I will keep them to myself.

Although, I do have one question, where will this stop once it is created? This type of ID can create whole bunch of privacy and ID thief issues if not handled correctly. There is also a whole bunch of other problems it will create.
