Former Gov. Tommy Thompson was one of the first high-profile supporters of tiny microchips implanted in people's arms that would allow doctors to access medical information.
Now the state he used to lead is poised to become the first to ban governments and private businesses from forcing such implants on employees, privacy advocates say.
A proposal moving through the state Legislature would prohibit anyone from requiring people to have the tiny chips embedded in them or doing so without their knowledge. Violators would face fines of up to $10,000.

I hope they fine people alot more than $10,000. Especially if governments begin to use this; there should be some severe consequence that 'We, The People' would be able to enforce; though I don't see that happening any time soon.
Now I've got to get the chip out of my cat that I found at the pound last year.. nothing living should have a chip of any kind...
