Rhode Island Gov. Donald Carcieri vetoed S211, a bill that restricted use of RFID to track children and motorists without a warrant. The bill also restricts the use of collection and use of toll-payment information for anything other than toll enforcement without a court order. The Rhode Island chapter of the ACLU -- in a statement on its Web site -- said that the Middletown School District last year began using RFID tags in backpacks to track the locations of elementary school students: "The bill separately keeps confidential any information gathered by a newly-installed RFID-driven E-ZPass toll payment system on the Pell Bridge," continued the statement, which went on to say that similar legislation has been vetoed and reworked three different times over the years.
