CA bill would ban forced subdermal RFID-tagging of humans

From Boing Boing:
California's senate passed a bill last week that bans the forced RFID tagging of humans (think: prisoners, employees, pedos out on the street who've done their time). The state senator who sponsored the bill described that scenario as the "the ultimate invasion of privacy." The bill is on its way to Governor Schwarzenegger's desk now; if it is signed into law, California would become the third state with such a ban on the books (along with Wisconsin and North Dakota).

Snip from Ars Technica post on this story:
"Senate Bill 362 'would prohibit a person from requiring, coercing, or compelling any other individual to undergo the subcutaneous implanting of an identification device,' and a similar version has already passed the state Assembly. Joseph Simitian, who came up with the idea, laments the fact that the RFID industry does not appear to find his idea a good one.

'I think it's unfortunate and regrettable that the industry hasn't come out in support of SB 362,' he said in a statement after the bill passed the Senate. 'I understand why we're having a robust debate about the privacy concerns related to RFID, but at the very least, we should be able to agree that the forced implanting of under-the-skin technology into human beings is just plain wrong. I'm deeply concerned that this isn't a given for the industry.'
