Congress may slap restrictions on SSN use (Article)

CNet reports: "WASHINGTON--Democratic and Republican politicians on Thursday both promised to enact new federal laws by the end of the year that would restrict some commercial uses of Social Security numbers, which are often implicated in identity fraud cases."

This law has been a long time in coming, and I wish they would have enacted it several years ago. Lets hope and pray this doesn't some how just die on the vine.

Some of the proposed legislation includes: limiting the sale and purchase of Social Security numbers (SSNs). Also restrict the display of SSNs on credit reports and other types of government-issued documents and identification tags.
